Street sweeping was a very different proposition when David James began his career in the Engerineering Section of Mid Devon Council.
In those days street sweeping was carried out by hand with three barrow sweepers. Nowadays street sweepers have heating, automatic cut-offs, power steering, effective suspension, radios. David started working for the council when he was 17 and retired this week after 48 years’ service.
