Thanks for those, Frank.  Some details of the presses were interesting and also the fact that the good, old-fashioned corrugated iron shades have still not been replaced by something trendy!

It must look mind-blowingly chaotic to the uninitiated and a world away from admiring the end products in isolation from the processes behind their creation.

Several of the workers have now been named in the pictures, including John Lawrie from ECA.
