This work is best shared during a coffee break and is for all those who can remember the old fashioned Typing pools. Along with high heeled shoes and frilly petticoats.

about the author

I was born in the East End of London in an area that was still covered by wartime debris, where we lived in an old house supported by three wooden buttresses. It was small and very cold in winter, heated by a coal fire and a paraffin stove where Mum worked endlessly shopping, cooking and cleaning everything manually.

What a change to the life we live now surrounded with technology at our fingertips, yet, personally I feel I have been privileged to have experienced that time, to have had a foot in each camp, be it modern or out dated, because even though push button A/B telephones and black and white TV doesn’t sound terribly interesting to the young, the community and determination of the people of those days continually pull so many of my emotional cords.

Two heads could be better then one by Maria Adams on 22 May 2017

The Typing Pool where competition could either be fierce and unkind; or a good happy place to work.

Everyone likes to be noticed and praised at times especially when they work hard.

But clashes in the typing pool could be rowdy and spiteful. With ultimate disgrace of losing your job.
