Female employees at Swindon Works making lamps, c. 1940

A larger group of female employees have been photographed here engaged in the making of lamps at Swindon Works. The tin lamp bodies and glass lenses are neatly stacked on the workbench awaiting assembly. The mass employment of women posed many challenges for the GWR, not least in the provision of suitable facilities such as toilets and rest rooms. In 1943 a Womans Welfare Supervisor, Miss Brennan, was appointed by the GWR to advise on such matters and to champion the use of women in all areas of the organisation
