Interesting Career Links

Alan’s career started at a

Printers called “Riggs”

In Bridlington. It was here

That he learnt his trade as

an engraver/printer. He

Worked there from the

 

Mid 1960’s until the early 1980’s. When he was made redundant. At this time technology was booming and having a big impact on the print industry and the skills needed for the trade.

 

After a short period break Alan managed to get a job at the Scarborough printing firm, Pindar Set. Although by this time computers  had well and truly taken there place in the printing industry and Alan’s role was more of a “Back office” managers role. Or as my dad saw it, filing the companies printing records using the “Monty Python method”, which means none but Alan knew were anything was.
