Celebrated journalist David Dimbleby can be seen visiting staff at an Ilkeston factory back in 1957.

In another picture from a scrapbook about Booth’s in Awsworth Road, Mr Dimbleby – father of famous brothers David and Jonathon – is about to present his Down Your Way programme, which was broadcast on BBC radio.

The picture is dated July 27, 1957 and is taken from former worker at the Awsworth Road factory Karl Aldred.
