Factory Voices – Mansfield Metalbox Audi Series – EP1

Posted by Olly April 14th, 2016

Jude from Sound Delivery contacted us as she was part of a series aimed at capturing the stories from Mansfield Metalbox workers from the 1940’s to the present day. It is an amazing series, and ill drip feed the episodes onto the website so you can hear all the fascinating stories from ex workers at the infamous Rock Valley Factory.

Big thanks to Sound Delivery and Mansfield Museum.

Cathy sent us an email with a picture of this wonderful tin dating from aroun 1862. If any ex-metalbox staff can help us identify what it was and what was in it that would be great. Please comment below 🙂


Metalbox Tin found in Norway

I’m always interested to hear about Metalbox tins cropping up in interesting places, so when Monica from Norway emailed me, I just had to get it on the blog to share.

She found this tin and reached out to us to find out if it held any value – i’m not sure it does but its certainly a pretty tin. Thanks for the submission, Monica 🙂

If you have a Metalbox tin and are located around the world we would love to hear from you!
