Watched this on iPlayer. Excellent programme. Interesting that the Evans factory has been restored only to the state it would have been when it closed. So you get a good feel for working conditions, tools used, building environment etc. A nice insight which challenges how museums present the past. Well worth watching the whole programme. Viv.
I really liked this photo the first time round. And it's good to see it again. First time round I'd assumed the whole of the left-hand building was Evans's factory. But several of the windows have net curtains! So I assume those must have been domestic areas and the 'shop' was around the back. I think there's a sign next door above the alleyway directing you to Evans's. From memory, I think there was a photo showing Evans's having expanded not only into the domestic areas, but into next door too. Viv.
