Ordnance Works, Coventry
Thousands of workers under one roof, cold light. Fuses. Components. Shells. Sockets. Wires. Out into the late autumn low sun. Sandwiches by the canal. Guns go out on the factory tracks. Shift changes, off to the local, then a walk home.
The main workshop at the Coventry Ordnance works was claimed to cover a greater area under its single (110 feet to the apex) roof than any other factory in the country.
