No 9 Shop, Sewing Room, August 1914

The date of this photograph is 7th August 1914. Just three days after Britain entered the war. By this date there were already women employed at Swindon Works and this view of the Sewing Room in the Carriage and Wagon Works shows approximately 30 women working on fabric items for carriages. From Swindon Works war records we know that requests were made from the Government for items such as first aid stretchers, cots and mattresses for ambulance trains and blankets. These would have come through the sewing room to be worked on and completed
