I WRITE regarding the article, Art for the heart of town (Keighley News, June 6), about the Original Factory Shop 50th-anniversary celebrations.

I joined Peter Black’s in 1970 and in the first year my department set up the factory shop in a room within the factory. I ran it for two years in overtime.

The shop as we know it now was the works canteen and it was some years before the canteen was moved to enable the shop to be enlarged.

With this in mind I think that to celebrate 50 years is somewhat premature.
