Photographic Print of Swindon Works Polishing Shop in 1914

Swindon Works Polishing Shop in 1914
Swindon Works Polishing Shop in 1914
A photograph taken on 7th August 1914 of the Polishing Shop in the Carriage and Wagon Works. French polishing was a skilled trade and from the 1870s women had proven themselves to be highly capable in this role. They were given their own women-only workshop and by the 1890s were officially termed French Polishers. This was equal to their male counterparts. In December 1916 a directive was sent out to convert part of the Polishing Shop for the manufacture of aeroplanes.

Whether or not these women had a part to play in this we do not know, but they would have come in close proximity to this extraordinary sight
