Staff from G. Bramall & Co, manufacturers of waterproof clothing, including 'Bramac' rainwear. The company employed women during the second world war and manufactured school uniform raincoats for nearly fifty years before closing in August 1981. Eleven employees, many of whom had worked for the company for a number of years, lost their jobs (See Manawatū Evening Standard 31 July 1981). Identified in this photo are: Hazel Hubbard (later Hazel Baker), in the checked raincoat; and Nancy Mackay (nee Cade) second from right.
