Willow House: Aurea

Posted on 05 November 2012 | Audio, Narrative

Everyone used to work at Rowntree’s or Terry’s in York – there were so many workers that they had to stop the traffic to let them go home for their dinners.

Willow House: AureaMy husband worked at Rowntree’s and often he would come home late. When I asked where he’d been, he would tell me that his bicycle wheels had got stuck in the tram lines. He had to keep cycling in the direction of the tram until he reached the end of the line!

This story and the others featuring on our website this week (w/c 5th November 2012) have been gathered by volunteers at the University of York.
