9781872883793: In My Fashion: Starting Work in the Heyday of Leicester's Knitwear Factories

Generations of women toiled in Leicester's hosiery factories. This is the story of one of them, a school leaver who started work cutting cotton vests for the Cherub factory in 1949, then went on to work in a dress factory and progressed to the design office.

Highlights in her life at this time included Saturday nights at the Palais wearing Max Factor makeup, weekends hiking to youth hostels, and listening to talk about sex. They re described with matter of fact humour and innocence.

But this story is not just about one person's factory life - it's about everyone who gets a job, grows up and tries to figure everything out.
