Elswick Works Newcastle upon Tyne April 1948 TWAM ref 1027 269 These tractors were manufactured by Vickers after the Second World War using Sherman tanks which had become surplus to military requirements Workshop of the World is a phrase often used to describe Britain s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century It s also a very apt description for the Elswick Works and Scotswood Works of Vickers Armstrong and its predecessor companies These great factories situated in Newcastle along the banks of the River Tyne employed hundreds of thousands of men and women and built a huge variety of products for customers around the globe The Elswick Works was established by William George Armstrong later Lord Armstrong in 1847 to manufacture hydraulic cranes From these relatively humble beginnings the company diversified into many fields including shipbuilding armaments and locomotives By 1953 the Elswick Works covered 70 acres and extended over a mile along the River Tyne This set of images mostly taken from our Vickers Armstrong collection includes fascinating views of the factories at Elswick and Scotswood the products they produced and the people that worked there By preserving these archives we can ensure that their legacy lives on Copyright We re happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons Please cite Tyne Wear
