Vote for your favourite Baldwin's Casuals employee

A few weeks ago, in our Corrie A-Z feature, I did a blog post on Baldwin's Casuals, the factory that dominated the even side of the street between 1976 and 1989. And I thought it'd be nice to find out who was your favourite factory employee.

Some of you may remember Baldwin's Casuals in its heyday in the 70s and 80s, while others, like me, have witnessed those classic factory scenes on the internet or on DVDs.

So who was your favourite Baldwin's Casuals' employee? You can choose from the following:

Vera Duckworth - machinist between 1976 and 1989
Ivy Tilsley - machinist/shop steward/supervisor between 1976 and 1989
Elsie Tanner - supervisor between 1976 and 1979 and machinist between 1981 and 1983
Ernest Bishop - wages clerk between 1976 and 1978
Hilda Ogden - cleaner between 1977 and 1987
Steve Fisher - van driver and trainee manager between 1977 and 1979
Ida Clough - machinist between 1978 and 1988
Emily Bishop - wages clerk between 1982 and 1989
Shirley Armitage - machinist between 1983 and 1989

Voting closes on Monday, 6th of May. Next week you can vote for your favourite Underworld employee. Also, there's still time to vote for your favourite Corrie accessory.

I picked from your list, but actually my favourite factory casual was the Polish Vicki.

Was Suzy Birchall as Baldwin's Casuals employee? I know she was manager of Mike's denim store. If so Suzy was my fav Baldwin's Casuals employee.

Anon: Polish Vivki worked for Underworld, not Baldwin's Casuals.

Suzie only worked for a few months in 1979 as a machinist. I've chosen the more longer term characters.

My fav was always Angie, who came from design school. An intelligent, educated young woman: not many of them on the street!
