Did you work at Head Wrightson? Do you know friends or relatives who worked there? We need your thoughts, memories and reflections to help preserve a very special collection of photographs.

Chief Photographer at Head Wrightson’s Research and Development department, Alan Simpson, donated his negative collection to Stockton Borough Libraries. The collection contains over 16,000 negatives detailing the work carried out by Head Wrightson from 1958-1978 with hundreds of images of employees at work and play, providing a fascinating insight into the culture of the company and of the time.

We’re in the process of putting a funding bid together to preserve and digitise the negative collection. If you remember working at Head Wrightson or know people who did then let us know in the comments below and we can add your thoughts to this exciting project. Here are just a few of the pictures from the collection.
