Tasks in slipper factory

Postby Sue Harris » Sat Mar 11, 2017 10:03 pm

Hello
I am researching my family history and have 2 people working at a slipper factory at Rawtenstall, Lancashire in 1939 (from 1939 Register). One was a bottom scourer and the other a bottom painter. Is anyone able to advise me what these tasks actually involved
Thanks

I don't know if this helps, but a heel scourer crafted the heel of a shoe; maybe a bottom scourer did the same for the sole of a slipper.
