AN Ulverston printing business offers a reminder for the community of how things used to be done.

Alan Ingle, of Princewood Drive, Barrow, wrote in 2008 about some of the history of the Remainder Press at Ulverston.

He wrote: “My father, Harry Ingle, worked there from 1930 when he joined his father at the firm from work.

“He was there for 60 years, except for the Second World War when he was called up and joined the navy. He was a time-served apprentice machine compositor at a firm which contained his dad, sister, uncle and brother-in-law, also for a time two Ulverston lads.

“Being larger than Fletcher and Robinson printers just up the road, and printing the forerunner to the Advertiser for 28 years, they became the town’s general and commercial printers.”
