Please leave the LTP alone! Getting it online was a hard won victory and if you don't like the format go out there and do your own! Once you realise how complicated a project like that is you'll go away quietly....

Found this on a FB site:

BFI- Lancashire's Time for Adventure (1948)

Good enough place to put it although a bit rose tinted compared to the reality.

An outfit in Manchester digitising oral history of the Textile Industry is talking to me at the moment about digitising the original LTP tapes. They wanted my permission which I gave of course. I also alerted them to the fact we had it all available for download with the pics embedded on the site and they have had a look at it and said it is a wonderful resource. I've asked them to publicise the fact it exists as part of their work. They are calling me on Friday morning.... Watch this space!

I had a very constructive conversation with David yesterday and I think I've persuaded him that our site version of the text with pics is the ideal companion to the digitised tapes. It's work in progress but I think I may be the most promising lead he has. Watch this space.

With James Nutter being great great grandfather it made a very interesting read and of how wealth was made by only a small handfull of people. having read the will of James Nutter the power and money within the family shifted to WIlfred and Ughtred with my ancestor, james Edmund Nutter being a blacksheep. (not dicovered why yet). Harry Nutter, my grandfather went ont to marry Louie Davy and were never short of a "bob or two" but not wealthy...Grans father, George Davy became councillor in barlick but not much information about him in here other than a good photo of great Grandma Margaret Davy in Bancroft (his wife). Did note that George was also a winder for a time at Bancroft

still reading, many thanks
