W & AK Johnson - Workers
Thank you to
Agnes Inglis, Dunbar, East Lothian, for
allowing me to reproduce this photograph, and to Winnie Lisowski, Dunbar,
East Lothian, for sending a copy of the photo to me.
tells me that Agnes worked for W & AK Johnson from 1943 when she started a
4-year Apprenticeship at the age of 14, until 1959. Agnes and the
others kept in touch with each other until about ten years ago.
Agnes is now aged 83. In this photo, Agnes is 3rd from the right on
the back row.
explained that the photo was taken from the rooftop in 1950, and that the
photo shows the three balconies at the back of Bothwell Street with
washing hanging out, and the W & AK Johnson girls in their overalls.
