    Default Tate and Lyle, 1960

    Here, there & everywhere.


    Loads of Tate & Lyle pics here:

    Local kids would swim in the canal nearby, a part called the 'Scaldies' which was warmed by the by products pumped out by Tates.

    The Bridge pub on Chisenhale st bridge was known locally as the fly house as workers who drank in there were covered in sugar, thus attracting flies.

    Updated weekly with old and new pics.
