Tom George

After making the comment about Tom George’s height on the previous image of Liverton Mines chapel, I asked his Daughter Iris if I could send you this one. Tom was employed on Skinningrove Iron works, and by the look of it he was in the platelayers gang. He sports a hammer that was used to relocate the wooden chocks that had come out of the rail chairs. I think you will agree that he was a tall man for his time, but very much a gentle giant. Tom was very well known in both Liverton Mines & Loftus. Jen Trembath tells us: ”I believe the man he is with to be my uncle – Horace Trembath – who lived in Skinningrove”.
