100 year old squeegee goes home to America

Having attended the 70th Anniversary & Trade Show of the Federation of Window Cleaners a few weeks back, I stumbled upon a real nice guy called Kevin Dixon.

What is the liability of householders to window cleaners on ladders?

Back in the 1900’s before the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 was a mere twinkle in the eye of the HSE’s first Director General, John Locke (74) window cleaning, just as all other trades, took great risks.
