STOKE WORKS - COVENTRY


These are pictures from the G.E.C. Stoke Works in Coventry, Great Britain, known as the Telephone Works.

They show some of the works and some of the people who worked there.  What must be remembered is that the UK was once a manufacturing country and these people were actually producing real products with their own hands - not like most UK industry today!

The only information on these pictures are in the captions - there is no other information about these pictures, so if you have anything to offer about the processes involved or the people please contact the author.
