I visited Smethwick baths to get clean

I READ with interest the article by Bill Pace about Tangye's.

I was apprentice there for four years. I worked in the foundry from the age of 17 until 21, when I went into the army.

I worked mainly on the manufacture of lathe beds and also fly wheels. The work was dirty and heavy.

At that time I lived in Smethwick, at a house without bathing facilities, so I had to visit Rolfe Street baths to get clean.

When I came out of the army, I trained as an accountant. I then worked at J.B.&S Lees in West Bromwich, before going into teaching at Wulfrun College.
