Ursula Macmillan also submitted this photograph of the steam presses inside Spalding Laundry.

Stephanie Liquorish says her first job after leaving school at 15 was working on the steam presses.

Stephanie, who worked there until she was 17, remembers that the laundry was owned by Mr Simon.

She says: “My first wage packet was from there and they were happy days. I am 66 now.”
