Rebrook tinplate workers c. 1914.

Rebrook tinplate works

Rosemary wrote (Oct 2008): "Another photo of tinplate workers in Rebrook Tinplate Works. This was the Rock Mill. Note the long tongs which the furnace man was using. I do not have any names of the workers only of Charlie Perkins sat on the right at the front with a cap on. At a guess I think that this photo may have been taken about 1912-1914. Charlie was born 1888, and to me he looks about 14 or 15 years of age".
