Joan, 86, spotted a photograph of her uncle John Lee in an article in the Lancashire Evening Post.

She said: “I just couldn’t believe it at first. “There was a picture of my Uncle John and then next to it one of me!

“It brought back lovely memories. I had a wonderful time working at the mill. I particularly liked listening to the BBC’s Workers’ Playtime on the radio.”

Restaurant manager Lisa Jefferson arranged for a framed copy of both photographs to be presented to Joan.
