The Original Tram Sheds Next to Filton House

Go back to the map or view all the records from this map.

G1596. This building was where the original Tram Sheds were situated next to Filton House. It is being used to make component parts, and coils of wire are being used. There is to the left of the picture a drop hammer, and cable ducts for the three phase electricity supply. It became the main machine shop during the First World War. However, by the 1960's it had been extended in all directions into an assembly Shop again. All the staff, including the one woman are wearing protective coveralls.
