Not kidding Noel! the paint was a mix of emulsion and oil paint the two dont mix. The spotted effect came about by the spraying method.

Striped paint, and you're not kidding. Terry Grayston's the only lad I knew from the lab.

Late sixties/early seventies was Rocketman's estimate in an earlier thread about Brook Mill, any more offers?

I don't remember the Paint Works fire, so it must've been after 1965, when we moved to Kenilworth or maybe after '68 when we came to the US.

I do remember a fire at the L&B when the big steam engine behind the glass wall on Golden Hill went into over-speed and the flywheel separated. It smashed though the wall and finished up on the LMSAC fields, if memory serves.

I heard about the L&B fire Frank but only after I started there in '88. I'm surprised I didn't hear about it at the time. I'm still not sure when it happened. The department there ifI remember correctly was spreading department.
One thing I do remember about L&B where notices on some of the doors "danger, asbestos do not enter". The doors were unlocked and it was regarded as a route through the department to the lab. Hope it wasn't true!!

There was a fire in the varnish house when I worked at Leyland Paints would have been around the mid eightes I guess

Noel. I worked there from 1971 to 1979. I ended up mixing colours on the platform. Did your father play on the football team?
