The Biscuit Girls
Ivy, Dulcie, Barbara, Ann, Dorothy and Jean all had different reasons for applying for work at Carr’s of Carlisle, but once they had put on their overalls and walked through the factory gates they discovered a community where they worked hard, gossiped, got into scrapes and made lifelong friends.
Beginning in the 1940s, this is the true story of the ‘Home of Biscuits’, based on the vivid recollections of six of the women who helped send Carr’s biscuits around the world.
