First job. I am very proud to say I worked for Manchester liners on Trafford road. I was in the print room. The office block is still a very distinctive building shaped like the bridge of a ship with a totem pole at the main entrance showing the historical links with the Canadian Atlantic ports. An innotive company that was the first to go completly cellulised. Multi winners of the silver arrow. Swallowed up by Furness Withy and OOCL.

My Dad sailed for many years as a merchant seaman (Johnny Williams) and only became part of the shore gang around 1954 when I was born. We lived in the flat at Manchester Liners House for about 4 years when dad sadly passed away. He always had fond memories and the company certainly took care of us as a family.
