EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to a significant moment in automotive history. It captures the very first car on the production line at Ford motor plant in Dagenham, following a monumental strike that shook the industry. The date etched beneath the image, 20th March 1969, marks this pivotal event. Intriguingly, what makes this photograph even more remarkable is the presence of women workers alongside their male counterparts. This snapshot challenges traditional gender roles prevalent during that era and highlights how women played an integral role in shaping the automotive landscape. The assembly line depicted here showcases a scene of bustling activity within an industrial setting. The atmosphere is charged with anticipation as workers meticulously assemble each component of these iconic cars that would soon hit the roads. As we gaze upon this historical artifact from Blandford's lens, we are reminded of how far our transportation industry has come since those early days. This image serves as a testament to human ingenuity and determination to innovate and improve our means of transport. Whether you're an automobile enthusiast or simply fascinated by moments frozen in time, this print offers a glimpse into a defining chapter in both industrial history and societal progress.
