Whiteley Electrical Radio Co Ltd

Childrens Christmas Party January 1970

By Nick Eley

The photograph dated January 1970 from Whiteley Electrical Radio Co Ltd childrens Christmas party was recently discovered by Joe Phelan who is working on the old factory site, Portland Mill building on Victoria Street, Mansfield, prior to the building being renovated and turned into flats. He passed it to me as I expressed an interest in the work he was doing on the site, my connection with the building was that I worked there from August 1966 to August 1968 in the Inspection Department and the Drawing Office.

Are you on this photograph or perhaps a parent of one of the children? It would also be interesting to hear any memories from former employees of Whiteleys.

Hi Stuart. I also had Cyril Lane as boss and I tested transformers in Transformer rooms 1 and 2 before I moved to the drawing office under Walter Fox. I left in August'68..

Hi Nick,

Good to hear from you, does not seem like 50 odd years ago. Please keep in touch, did you live on Nottingham Road?

Still in touch with Geoff Vardy if you can remember him

All the best, StuartMallinder
