Erecting shop large_1997_7059_HOR_G_1

This view shows the interior of the Horwich Works erecting shop in 1890, barely 3 years after the works was opened. A traditional view perhaps, but the works lasted until BR days, and after steam also developed some innovative engineering techniques for fabricating components. Photo: Science Museum Collection
