I finished my apprenticeship as a joiner with Chambers Builders in Motherwell.That same year I was sent out to a job of building a large hut in the middle of a field, we could not figure out why it was here and in a specific spot. It turned out to be the very first building for drawings for the new steelmill called Ravenscraig. I will never forget the space there was, but it sure got filled up. That was a long time ago, and I came to Canada ten years later and have been here since.

My Husband worked for Chambers in the '70s. He thinks a Mr Forrest of Garrion Bridge near Larkhall, in Lanarkshire would remember you. He still lives there but don't know if he's is on line. Mr Forrest was the maintenance man there all his days. Hope this is of interest to you.
