They all worked in the Blacking shop in the days when it was exactly that, black, it was a very dirty place, and because of the black paint, was very smelly,a while later a plant was put in where everything was put in at one end dipped in black paint and dried and was taken off at the end all done, they where a happy bunch of work mates the girl sitting in the middle next to my mother Ivy Taylor who is bottom right, I am sure died young.
