Last of 3D factory shots


THIS week we feature the last in the series of ‘3D’ stereoscope photographs of former Ilkeston hosiery factory Booths, sent in by Alan Boswell.

Alan has now donated the 40 slides like this one, which he was given after a house clearance, to Erewash Museum in Ilkeston.

The slides belonged to a man who Alan believes worked as an engineer on the management team at the factory in Awsworth Road, Ilkeston.

The images are on glass slides best viewed on a stereoscopic viewer found with them, which makes them appear in 3D.

Alan has also given the High Street museum the viewer.

Anyone who wants to see the photographs, should call the museum on 0115 907 1141.

It is open from 10am to 4pm Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
