The following links are to the three 'galleries'
of photographs of people who worked at Parsons Heaton Works at some time:
All the photographs were written to a CD several years
ago and copies given to a small group of former employees with an appeal
to them that they help identify some of the many people that had not been
listed in an associated plain text
file. The CD was later updated with 'Bob's Bonus' that included lots
of music - this is not included in this website version as it takes up a
lot of website space and might be also a breach of copyright if it were.
The CD included a simple guide to its use - see here! (Bob's Bonus was added for Bob
Hindmarsh when he achieved 45 years of labour with Parsons plus Siemens.)
