We’re jamming again

Today we’ll feature another photo of jam factory workers. Maybe, once again, we’ll get valuable information about these people.

Jam factory ladies at Samuel Moore Foods, Easterton – probably in the 1960s

These three ladies are clearly sporting the latest in jam factory wear with elegant aprons and lovely gloves. In a sense it is a shame they have posed for a photo. It doesn’t tell us what job they did but presumably it was potentially hot and messy.

We believe these three ladies to be (from the left) Mary Burry, Dolly Wiltshire and Rosie Twiss. They were working at Samuel Moore Foods, the Easterton jam factory and we think this dates from the 1960s.

It would be good to learn more about them.

    These three ladies worked at the back of the boiling pans. They weighed up the ingredients for what ever jam was being produced that day it was a very hot and sticky job (excuse the pun) and the large aprons, rubber boots did not help. It was hard work.

    The lady in the middle of pic is my grandmother Dorothy ‘Dolly’ Wiltshire.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
