These things made Britain great: unlike the Droitwich sausage...
Bill Phillips: The Droitwich Sausage heralds the turning point in the country's fortunes. It marks the green shoots of recovery

The wheel seems to be invented in Britain - and what were we humans without the wheel - sometimes even sausages/Bratwurst look like wheels. I can imagine the noise and the oily smell in this working place when all the machines were running/am Laufen.
Bill Phillips: The Cumberland sausage comes to mind smile The factories were very noisy and unpleasant places to work...we look back through rose coloured glasses

The one at the back is a lathe , and I think in yesterday's we had a simple press too. I was always amazed at the ingenuity of the machines required for even simple parts.
Bill Phillips: I recall watching a big mill machine working, and wondering how people worked out how to make the machine to make the product.
I can still smell the oil and lubricant. Its a lovely smell.
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Sheila

You can smell the oil rags from here Bill agree with Blackdog about the lathe.

Superb capture.

An evocative shot Bill, imagine it all up and running!
Bill Phillips: It would look even better!
I suppose tyhey are like works of art aren't they. Looking good in that light Bill
Bill Phillips: Industrial art Janet
Shrouded in mystery - I like the atmosphere and your not knowing! smile
Bill Phillips: My Father was an engineer but I have not inherited any engineering flair from him!
A good follow up to yesterday Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian, i thought two would be enough
Well I recognise the sewing machine, but after that, it's anyone's gues, Bill!
