Carlisle Cathedral JLP01_08_075746

CARLISLE CATHEDRAL, CARLISLE, CUMBRIA. Foreman stonemason, Ted Drinkwater, working at Carlisle Cathedral checking a stone head on the north face of the cathedral. Half its face had been replaced using SBD Certite as the adhesive.
This photograph is part of a batch taken by Laing to show restoration work being carried out using SBD Certite. In 1961, N M Phillips, the architect for Carlisle Cathedral started experimenting with the bonding material SBD Certite in the restoration of the cathedral. It was used on all but one of the decorated Gothic windows of the South Clerestory and by the time this photograph was taken, it was being used in the restoration of the north face of the cathedral. By using SBD Certite, Laing stonemasons were able to remove just the weathered surface of the stonework. New stone only two inches deep could be bonded to the old stone saving more of the original fabric of the building and cutting costs by a third. The photograph was published in April 1967 in Laing's monthly newsletter Team Spirit

Carlisle State Management Brewery, Bridge Street, Caldewgate, Carlisle, Cumbria. A group of female workers posed at the opening ceremony for the new bottling plant at the State-owned brewery in Carlisle.
The opening ceremony of the bottling plant was performed by Sir Sydney O Nevile, a director of Whitbread's Brewery, but also a founder member of the State Management Districts Committee and the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) which had established the Carlisle State Management Scheme during the First World War. The bottling plant was built to supply increasing demand for bottled beers and in particular for those with no sediment. The plant had two lines of bottling machinery with a maximum production of 450 dozen bottles an hour
