    Interesting, now they've wound up UK operations as Alaris I guess I can now come clean and admit I did work as a technical contractor at Harrow occasionally with some of their ultrasonic instrumentation and a few weird bits of kit.

    It was a tragedy but over a few years I watched the Harrow site shrink and shrink.

    I have a Kodak ID card, which I have kept as a momento.

    I also lived in the Kodak town of Hemel Hempstead. The sports club is now a derelict waste ground but parts of the running track are still visible. Most of the buildings that were once a big part of the industrial estate are now either waste ground or have been replaced with warehouses for the likes of Amazon. The big Kodak tower by the magic roundabout has been converted into a cladding encased block of flats.

    At one time kids of this town left school and worked in either John Dickinson’s or Kodak with a few at Ovaltine, all have long since gone. We used to also have a huge Lucas Aerospace factory and Rolls Royce here, the former is waste ground while the latter and the airfield where it once stood is now the Warner Bros studios and Harry Potter attraction. You would think with all these lost companies jobs would be in short supply, it unemployment here is very low. Problem is it has resulted in more people commuting and all the problems that brings. Where once the majority could walk to work, now everyone sits for hours in traffic.
