Dh'ionnsaich Iain Friseal, Gobha Airgid Inbhir Nis, a chiùird anns na 1930an aig Medlock and Craik, seudairean agus luchd-dèanamh uaireadairean aig 6 Sràid na Drochaid, Inbhir Nis. An dèidh làimhe, bha togalaichean aig a' chompanaidh ann an Exchange Place agus Geata na Bànrigh.

Anns an earrann chlaistinn seo bho na 1970an, tha Mgr. Friseal a' cuimhneachadh air buaidh an Dàrna Cogaidh air gnìomhachas na seudraidh. Tha an dealbh seo, a chaidh a thoirt le Taigh-tasgaidh agus Gaileiridh Ealain Inbhir Nis (IMAG), a' sealltainn fear de na h-earrannan aig Iain Friseal - sgian-pàipeir airgid.

'I think the biggest break that took place was when the war started. You see, a big lot of the skilled men and the trades and that, went into foundries. For instance, the watchmaker that worked in Medlock and Craik's went into Rose Street Foundry. The jeweller was doing part-time work and then eventually he left and went into something which was an industry at the time. A lot of employees in the workshops in the south, you see, they went into munitions.

After the war, instead of these people coming back, they just seemed to disappear into industry, you know, and they died off in those jobs, they never came back into the job that they'd served their time at at all. What you found then was that a lot of the people that came into our trade were dental mechanics, were engineering students, good at fabrication, good at designing on a small scale, and were partial to working in something finer than just base metals. And so they took an aptitude up for working in silver and gold and they used their technical knowledge in engineering to fabricate in a different way from a man making up with hammers, you know, and engraving with gravers and that. They were able to make dies they were able to design dies. And what they did was, they would go out and they would get people in various mechanical processings to alter something in the machinery that they had so that they could use it in a different field altogether'
