Female Clerks at Swindon Works, 1916

A group shot of female clerks taken in May 1916. This group are from the Accounts Office at Swindon Works and were managed by Mr Kelynack, the Clerk in Charge. Mr Kelynack went on to become Chief Clerk to the CME in 1929. The back two rows reveal a very young group of girls who do not look much older than 15 or 16 years of age. For these female and girl clerks their position had a certain status attached to it. Although they were paid a lot less than male clerks their roles were much admired and always had plenty of applicants. By 1918 the GWR were employing almost 3000 female clerks across the network
