We are the Engineers!: They Taught Us Skills for Life

We are the Engineers!: They Taught Us Skills for Life

This book has grown out of an oral history The End of the Shift, which aims to record the working practices and conditions of skilled workers in Scotland’s past industries. Publicity about the project caught the interest of a group of retired engineers, who had all served apprenticeships with a prestigious Kirkcaldy firm, Melville-Brodie Engineering Company.
