My time at the company (2)

I conclude this story with some photos of the interior of the factories.  
Above is a line of Sweeney & Blocksidge No.9 power presses in the No. 1 Factory. The photo on the left is also of the press shop in the No. 1 Factory.
The tool room at Wilton Pressings.
A Ballard oven in the paint shop at the No.2 Factory.
Views of the Inspection Department at the No. 1 Factory.  Right:  a Rockwell hardness testing machine.

I would be glad to hear from anyone who has any information about the Rollings and Lisle families in Wolverhampton, or about the Star and its associated companies, or about the Rollings family and their companies in Birmingham.

Please email me:
