Early view along Gipsy Patch Lane

G1197. This 1930's view along Gipsy Patch was probably taken in the mid 1930's. At this time building work was beginning to extend East Works under the shadow factory scheme. The car park in the foreground is well filled, as are the bicycle sheds. There is a bunker in the centre of the picture with a military vehicle parked by it. Some houses are still alongside the road but they would soon go as expansion accelerated.
