Factory Exit in Lincoln (1900)

Victorian industrial workers leave their factory after a demanding day.

Non-Fiction 1900 2 mins Silent


Glimpses of a line of washing lend a picturesque air to these scenes of flat-capped workers in heavily soiled work-clothes dashing home. By 1900, Lincoln's heavy engineering industry was flourishing and it's likely these workers were building locomotives or producing agricultural machinery at one of the many companies based in the city at the time. The name of the factory remains a mystery.
