George Marshall’s work repairing washing machines

George started work in 1952 repairing washing machines. He owned his own shop which did this. His working day began at 8.30 p.m. He only took two weeks off a year. When he started work he gave some money to his mother. During the day he got to meet a lot of people and learnt how to repair a range of electrical equipment. The job could be dangerous. He used hand tools and he felt that there is more money in this business nowadays.

George Marshall was interviewed by S2 pupils from Elgin High school
