My father (Wilfred Clapham) worked here until his death in 1975. He had previously worked at J & H McClaren in Hunslet lane until it's closure in the 60s.

Is this the same company that made aircraft parts? My father worked there till 1991. Sadly he has passed away recently, but I would love to find out more about the factory and anyone who worked with him, and what he did.Especially if they have picture records of the employees.
