Working for Baxters in 1930s by Ann Adams

Ann went to work for Baxters in 1939. She was 15 years old. In the afternoons she was sent to work in the factory.  She left to go to work for Murray the Bakers as a clerkist in the office. She had found the office at Baxters to be small. She remembers being paid £2 a week in 1945. When she got married she stopped work. She could have gone back to work at the bakery after she got married. There were a few married women in the bakery. Later on after she had children she went back to Baxters to work in the office.
