Did you work at Plessey's? Check out these old pictures

After our recent story on the reunion of former workers from Plessey's in South Shields, I've been sent some great pictures from back in the day, which it's my pleasure to share with you.

The photos were sent by Lynda (Tyrie) Lamb, who, along with Fran (Kane) Manson and Ann (Morgan) Blacklock, helped organise the reunion night, held at Brigham’s Club.

Lynda said: “There were about 60 people there, which we were delighted with.”

Now there are plans afoot to arrange another reunion event, when it is hoped that even more ex-staff members go along and share their recollections.

In the meantime, can you identify any of the workers pictured in this week’s nostalgia spread?
