Frances Green talks about the demolition process in 1953/4 when Crawford’s Biscuit Factory took over the streets around Binns Road. Also during the war when sweets were rare she remembers the girls in the chocolate room throwing chocolate out the windows to the children below and begging for biscuits on Tuesdays and Thursdays outside the gates to the factory. Frances talks about how busy Edge Lane would be of an evening as people went home from all the factories such as Meccano, Crawfords and The Automatic
