THE Oldbury company of Accles and Pollock were well-known for their expertise in high tolerance engineering, including the production of ‘the smallest tube in the world’, and the ladies on the left knew all about this minute attention to detail, working as they did in the ‘hypo needle’ shop.
Our thanks go to Anita Cutler of Rowley Regis for supplying this photograph from around 60-70 years ago. She has also sent in another A&P snippet this week, which appears on the back page.
Aunts Anita has two aunts who feature in this photograph — Evelyn Robinson (nee Blount), who is third from the right on the back row — and Eva Powell (nee Cutler), who stands next to Evelyn, second from the right.
Three others named are Norma Whitehouse, standing second from the left, Brenda Hammond (nee Butler), who stands fourth from the left, and the chap on the right is Bill Crumpton.
If readers can name any of the others please let us know.
