    Collection: 1948 Olympic Games: Then & Now

    In 1948, Mary was working for Matthias Robinson’s in Leeds, where Debenhams now stands on Briggate. When she started work, she could get precious material and learned to use a treadle machine in the sewing rooms, which are still there today. Mary enjoyed her work as it was a good company and everyone got on with each other.
