My nan and grandad married Christmas day 1920 at St. Matthews Church, Duddeston, Birmingham along with several other couples.

I was a big fan of Sunday working as it was double-time & selling your labour at the highest price is common-sense!  ;D

Skoosh.
Nice one Skoosh. Preferably in a fully unionised environment.

Of course Roger!  ;D

The days of ministers lying down on Hebridean piers to try & stop Sunday ferries are thankfully long gone in Scotland.

   I doubt if many people get double time for Sunday working now, and there are not many fully unionised environments.

Much of the problem regarding the failure of Sunday train services. No longer paid for working on some companies.
