Miss Winifred Ford Department manager Millinery dept, Robert Sayle's. Photographed here at her 25years service award. Pam Woollard's thoughts about Miss Winifred Ford

Miss Winifred Ford was Manager of  the Hat Department and always found me (Pam) to arrange the hats in the windows and on the staircases.  The hats had to be put on at the correct angle while she watched me.  To carry them anywhere, they were arranged between sheets of tissue paper and carried a wicker basket.  When I went anywhere with her to arrange hats, she held my hand to make sure that I wouldn’t escape!
