All his Working Days

An oral interview I conducted with Keith Johnson in March 2013. Keith worked for the South Staffordshire Water Company as a chemist; he recalled his working career from school, to the lab at Sandfields pumping station, Lichfield.


Keith is a true gentleman and has kindly recorded some remarkable and fascinating stories about his working life. Oral interviews like these give us the listener, a rich insight into the past lives of some of the employees and working practices of a unique company.

Please take a moment to listen to this fascinating tale.
