Taken: 1951-1953, Ref: M1935

Shop setting out’. Photo (2) of a series illustrating the making of a window. From page 15 of catalogue. The caption says ‘Shop setting out. This is what might be termed a ‘front line position’, where the drawings from the setting-out department actually come in contact with the metal, the cut lengths of which are here marked out with the different machining positions’. John Thurgoood, who worked there, says this picture was taken at the Witham works. See link for notes on the catalogue.
