    Default S Russell & Sons


    Thanks for showing these fantastic photos. I was doing some research regarding S Russell & Sons as my late father Reg worked there after being demobbed from the Royal Navy after WW2. He was there up until the mid 80's when he was made redundant. I have some fantastic castings that were produced there in the sand filled moulds. If there are any left in the factory some could be quite valuable.Bitter sweet memories for me and my siblings. Thanks again Mikey.
