Was on the building of the new front on the Gandy offices. Very small bricks and they looked really good. Still do I think. Also built an electricity sub station inside. How the hell anyone could work in there was beyond me. Stank plus all that asbestos must have caused real problems for people in later life.

The one on Birkenhead Road, Wallasey? I remember that place, all the boys in school used to scavenge the reject toys and bring them into school, mainly missile throwing toys too if I remember right.
