My Plymouth History

Today we’re pleased to present our first featured entry from #MyPlymouthHistory – this wonderful picture of Farley’s Rusks vehicles, from Hayley Ferme. Hayley says

I have a box of old items from my grandfather. He was Transport Manager for Farley’s Rusks in Plymouth. As you will know, the factory has long since gone. The newspaper article “Farleyman Bob retires after 38 years” is from 1975. It states “when he returned to Plymouth after the war, his first job was to remove the camouflage that had been used at the factory while production continued during the war”.

Do you have an object or photograph that shows a bit of your Plymouth History? Send it to the Festival Producer or share it with us on Twitter or Facebook with a brief description and the hashtag #MyPlymouthHistory.
