"Oh yes, oh yes. Nailing cans to benches and things like that"
Oh yes, oh yes. Nailing cans to benches and things like that. I donít know how they got them nailed to the bench. Someone made the tea and put it down ready for the midday break and someone would put a six inch spike through it, you know. And it did, it made a watertight, or tea tight joint when it was nailed to the bench, you know, and they would come to pick the can up and end up with the handle in their hands and the can on the bench. That was a regular thing.
