EDITORS COMMENTS
In this nostalgic print captured by Teesside Archive, we are transported back to the bustling construction site of ABLE UK in the 1970s. The image showcases a heartwarming father-son moment as Derek Vaughan, an operator on the colossal No. 1 crane, films his seven-year-old son also named Derek. The Graythorp site at Billingham was hosting an open day for workers' families, allowing them a glimpse into their loved ones' daily endeavors in building the next oil platform for Laing Offshore Pipelines. This snapshot encapsulates the strong sense of community and pride that permeated through small businesses during this era. As young Derek stands beside his father amidst towering cranes and heavy machinery, one can't help but marvel at the magnitude of human ingenuity and dedication required to construct such monumental structures in the North Sea's challenging environment. This photograph serves as a testament to both personal connections forged within these companies and their significant contributions to regional industries. It evokes memories of a time when hard work and craftsmanship were valued above all else. Teesside Archive's Memory Lane Prints allow us to reminisce about an era when small businesses played vital roles in shaping local economies while fostering familial bonds among employees.
