I was one of a very steady stream of customers making the short walk there from Companies House at noon every Friday around about that time - their lunchtime takings must have gone up about 500 per cent when that office opened!
When I worked for BT we had a job in there one Saturday and one of the blokes working with us spun one of those carousels around and all those film things come flying out all over the floor

I used to work on that section and it was quite a common occurrence, it was a nightmare for the person concerned because all of the microfilm had to be put back in numerical order.
I didn’t work on one of the carousels thankfully because the last time I saw someone who did, he told me that there were quite a few of the youngsters from about thirty years ago who suffered with back problems now.
