- Wandsworth Women's Working Lives Alternative
Part of a Battersea Arts Centre project on 'Wandsworth Women's Working Lives'. Women of various ages discuss their experiences of work in the Wandsworth district, from the 1920s through the Second World War and into the 1950s. The jobs discussed include cleaning, greengrocery, piece-work, gasket fitting on railway engines, nursing, child-minding and working in Wandsworth's gas mantle factories. The women express the hope that their own daughters and grand-daughters will have greater access to education and more choice in their working lives.
