Digging out in ‘47

editorial image

With the recent snow, it seemed a good time to show this picture from a collection sent in by Mrs Allen of 
Scothern.

It was taken in 1947 and Mrs Allen tells us her father was the telephone engineer for Brigg and District in the 1940s and 50s.

The men are digging out a section of the Brigg to North Kelsey Road.

Needless to say, conditions for travelling were horrendous
