Workers leaving British Thomson Houston
Workers leaving British Thomson Houston

BTH postcard

Having chosen the demolition of the GEC Alsthom chimney for our 25 years ago archive, I thought I would continue the theme with our main picture this week.

It’s one of Bill Stewardson’s postcard collection and shows workers at British Thomson Houston leaving work for the day (I assume).

There’s no indication of the date, but with the hundreds of men in the picture it just shows what a huge employer the company used to be.
