After searching through the files of old newspapers held in the Local History Library and in the National Archives of Scotland, she's pieced together the whole story. The booklet recalls the strange working conditions and the many safety rules which had to be observed, from not being allowed turn-ups on your trousers to vacating the premises in a thunderstorm.
