A fresh batch of luxury cocoa-based products are on the boil in Belper’s former Thortons Derwent Street factory here. However, we are more concerned with the identity of the workers in the photograph. Any former staff or friends and relatives with clues about their identity please get in touch - especially if you know what they were making!
We love to see your Memory Lane pictures and hear your recollections of ones we feature. You can send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org, post them to : Belper News, 27 Grosvenor Road, Ripley, Derbyshire, DE5 3JE or drop them off at our community postbox at News Corner at the top of King Street, opposite the Market Place in Belper. You can also contact us on Twitter at @belperlatest or phone us on 01773 514 153.
