Castle Bromwich Aeroplane Factory. Lunch time. This photo shows only a section of the main canteen.
I have a series of drawings done by my father for murals destined for this canteen dated 1944. My father, James S Holland OBE, worked for the Ministry of Information during the war, on exhibition design in the main. I don’t know if the murals were ever done and installed, but it is fascinating to see the canteen they were intended for. The drawings show sports and pastimes – presumably to provide some alleviation to the working day for the hardworking people at the factory.
