Staying in Witton, four pictures of G.E.C. (General Electric Company), taken back on 14th March 1968.

The Witton Engineering Works, built in 1902, was G.E.C.'s first purpose built factory and there were 9,000 people working there around 1964.

Unfortunately, some browsers don't show the ePapers photos so I've added a link for each one.
