Hello everybody,

Have just added another page re the Parliamentary Commission into Conditions
and Shorter Working Hours at Bleachworks 1855. Sounds pretty dull, doesn't
it! Actually anyone whose ancestors were bleachers will find this a
fascinating account of evidence given by some female workers to the
Commission in favour of shorter working hours, and gives us an insight into
what it must have been like to work in a 19th century bleachworks.

Valerie
