Swindon Works Fire Brigade,1916

This is a really impressive image of the Swindon Works Fire Brigade, taken in 1916. The smartly uniformed firemen are sat upon the Dennis Fire Engine which was purchased by the GWR in 1912. Being towed behind is an earlier oil fired steam fire engine. Being such a large industrial site Swindon Works had its own dedicated fire brigade in order to react quickly to any emergencies

Women war workers making ammunition shells in 24F Shop, 1943.
These women have been tasked with the pressing on of copper bands and insertion of base plates for 25-pounder quick firing, high explosive, streamline shells. They are using a specialist Aldous- Campbell Ltd high pressure machine which fits both copper band and base plate securely in position. The lady to the right of the machine is holding a shell in position and a notice board (just out of shot) states that two presses, one of eight seconds and another of five seconds, are required in the machine to seal the shell

New Swindon, c1860

This early view of Swindon looking north shows the Works and the Railway Village in their infancy. St Marks Church can clearly be seen just behind the newly laid out park. The Wilts and Berks Canal can be seen in the foreground running through the field at the back of the cottages in the Village
