How depressing reading some 1920s adverts for Blantyre in local newspapers. Sectarianism rife. Take this for example, a simple advert for a cook for Greenhall.
Where the qualifications are not asked for or even showing rates of pay, but where a major employment consideration and factor was “being a protestant’.
How far we’ve come indeed.
