Plessey at the Edge book

The Edge Lane site was the home to the ATM Company, AT&E (Automatic Telephone & Electric), Plessey, GPT and Marconi for over 100 years whilst these Companies were at the hub of the UK Telecommunications industry.

The site was much more than a place of work. It was a community of people who were very much connected to each other. It was a significant part of the culture and heritage of the city of Liverpool. Perhaps far more than those who didn't work there will ever know.

'Plessey At The Edge' is a planned book about those people. It aims to capture what it was like to work for these Companies and to recall the memories, the events, the good times, the bad times, the unique characters and the working life of so many thousands of people over the last 50 years or so.
