Winnifred Pratley

I am Coventry Kid now living in Dorset. I worked at Standard Motors from 1931-38 starting to learn car trimming.

They were happy times.

Our Managing Director was Sir John Black. Once a year he gave the trim shop girls a lovely ballroom dance which was held in the social club which is still in the Standard grounds.

I have lived in Dorset for 17 years, after my husband died.

I went to South Street school and was born in East Street when I was Winnifred Pratley. Now I am Winnifred Quinn and lived in Sir Henry Parkes Road before moving to Dorset.

W Quinn, Cranborne, Dorset.
