Fantastic to see all the process of which I recall seeing taking place and the very clever and skilled workforce that made the newspaper possible. Wonderful memories but the last time I went to Sidcup some of the old KT building was gone and certainly all the machinery and the fabulous press which to listen to at full chat was really something. Thanks for sharing this. Would not have missed this for the world.
