EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a heartwarming moment in the 1950s, as Laing workers and their families gather by a line of coaches during a staff outing to Whitley Bay. The image showcases the strong sense of community and camaraderie that characterized the Laing spirit. In 1947, after a seven-year hiatus, Laing revived their Area Outings for staff and their loved ones. These day trips were eagerly anticipated by employees from the Carlisle area, who seized this opportunity to relax and create lasting memories with their families. The photograph exudes nostalgia as it transports us back to an era when road transport was the preferred mode of travel for such excursions. The row of coaches stands as a symbol of adventure and exploration, ready to whisk away these hardworking individuals on a well-deserved holiday. As we gaze at this snapshot frozen in time, we can almost hear the laughter and feel the excitement emanating from those gathered. It serves as a reminder that amidst busy work schedules, it is essential to take moments like these – where colleagues become friends and families bond over shared experiences – to rejuvenate our spirits. Preserved within Historic England Archive's collection, this print not only immortalizes an important chapter in Laing's history but also celebrates the joyous tradition of company outings that brought people together during simpler times.
