Employing 2500 skilled operatives... it really dose not seem that long ago you could walk from one factory job to another.. and Hyde had such a choice of trades.

Thanks for stopping by the blog, Tom. It is good to hear from you again and I hope you and Jane are well.

This is interesting--it is getting more and more this way here. If the one major business closes in the largest town in our county, it will be hard times for a lot of the population. It is hard to find work, if one is not employed.
