Interior of Works, The Electric Construction Company Ltd., Wolverhampton

A copy of a torn photograph of a group of workers in the interior of the works. Note the hierarchy - the figure of authority appears to be the gentleman on the left (without a hat), whereas the workers all have their sleeves rolled up and are wearing flat caps. Note also, the use of children in the workplace. It is difficult both to date the photograph and to identify the manufacturing process.
