Irons made by my fa­ther

Black Country Bugle - - YOUR LETTERS -

THE Dudley CWS elec­tric iron fea­tured Bu­gle 1365 would have been made at their fac­tory in Hall Street Dudley; which was, I be­lieve once the home of Bean cars and is cur­rently Nut­tall’s shop fit­ting com­pany.

My dad, Reg West­wood worked there after he came home from the war and I re­mem­ber him telling me that he worked on elec­tric irons as well as cylin­der vac­uum clean­ers and ta­ble fans.

I re­mem­ber my mother us­ing a CWS iron but it was re­placed by a more mod­ern steam iron. There was also a de­part­ment that made metal buck­ets. When my fa­ther died a few years ago one of the things that was cleared out from his shed was a Dudley CWS ta­ble fan which still worked but was not up to mod­ern spec.
