RG010 Stratford Works 1892

  • RG010 Stratford Works 1892

An article taken from the July 1892 edition of the English Illustrated Magazine (published monthly by Macmillan & Co from 1883 to 1913). It was written by a senior GER employee - Alex P. Parker, Secretary to the Locomotive Superintendent James Holden. He had access to official photographs, seventeen of which appear in the article.

The main areas described include the steam hammer shop, the boiler shop, the machine shop, the erecting shop, the carriage department, the coach painters' shop, the wheel shop, the wagon department, the laboratory, the engine shed ('stables') and the dormitory.

The original text has been re-set in more modern font and is complete. The illustrations have all been scanned and inserted, often at more appropriate points in the narrative.

Please note that this article appeared in the following year as a chapter from the book "Round the Works of our Great Railways".
