Robertson's Jam Factory
« on: July 30, 2015, 01:14:45 AM »
Any of you Downhamites ever work at the Robertson's Jam Factory in Catford? I worked there for a few years between 1959 and 1966. Made a lot of friends and had a lot of good times. Anyone remember me from so long ago?

Hi Joanie, I was working on the forecourt of the petrol station (The Car Mart Ltd) across the Bromley Road from Robertsons in the years you mention, my wife worked for a while at the Glennifer Laundry which was next to Robertsons.

My mother worked there for a while but I can't remember the exact years.  I think it may well have been in the early to mid 60s.  Her name was Elsie Hand.
