A brief history of the firm from 1964 to 1987

 by Robert F.B.Unwin

 

Why P. and M.? The P. stands for Peter Unwin and M. for Margaret his wife who started the business at Rochdale in 1964. Peter was born in 1934, went to Oughtibridge village council school near Sheffield, then to King Edward Grammar School.

 

  Early years at school  Memories of KES - Peter J. Unwin

 

Not keen on sport, apart from swimming, he was interested in photography and contributed many photographs to the school magazine. His chief interest was in electronics, and all his pocket money went in radio parts and making experimental circuits.

 

Early guillotine used for cutting board edges. 1965. Flypress cost 10 and was delivered by the local milkman. 1965. Peter drilling out large holes with a lathe.
 

During 1950 he designed and made a prototype ankle joint for an artificial limb manufacturer, experimenting with sound on tape and making a tape deck. The following year, he passed the school certificate in six subjects, taught himself to play the piano from reading books on theory and was able to play popular music by ear. With three friends he formed a quartet until neighbours complained.
