2: A Return to - The Signalbox
PENNY WISE and her husband JOHN both work on the railways in charge of signalboxes in Manchester. Penny took the job because she couldn't stand house-work and had a horror of being left behind when her husband went out to work. John chose the railways to get out of the drudgery of factory work, but neither found satisfaction in their work. That was three years ago.
HAROLD WILLIAMSON , in a second visit to the Wises, finds them still unfulfilled at work, but in their spare time they have widened their horizons. John has won his way into university; Penny runs 16 women's clubs.
