Comments about this page

I believe the two paintings of the steelworks were painted by my uncle, John Hamilton. He went to art classes in Corby in the 70 -80's and worked as a deseamer in the heavy rolling mills. The area shown in the paintings was called the bar storage area and deseamers "dressed" the black hot bars (removing knots and defects). I believe the 24" mill can be seen in one painting. My father-in-law, John CONAGHAN was also a deseamer at this time. I was a leading hand electrician in the rolling mills around the same time.
