English: Female munitions workers inspecting 25 Pdr. shells at Northumberland Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, 20 November 1942 (TWAM ref. DX1529/1).
‘Workshop of the World’ is a phrase often used to describe Britain’s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century. It’s also a very apt description for the Elswick Works and Scotswood Works of Vickers Armstrong and its predecessor companies. These great factories, situated in Newcastle along the banks of the River Tyne, employed hundreds of thousands of men and women and built a huge variety of products for customers around the globe.
