Do you recognise this Fleetwood workforce?

Back in the 1950s, the Fleetwood Weekly News’ predecessor, the Fleetwood Chronicle, featured workforce pictures on a weekly basis.

Every week, a photographer visited one of the many manufacturing facilities around the town and took pictures of smiling staff members.

These two pictures were published on October 21, 1955.

They show the staff at James Varley and Co Ltd.

The overall manufacturer had a decent-sized workforce but the Weekly News has no record of what happened to the firm. Do you know? Are you in one of these pictures? Share your memories with us at the email address above.
