Commercial Spares Department

Commercial Spares Department

G1595. Taken in October 1952, this is the Commercial Spares Department. Based in the original hangar at the southermost of the three West Works hangars, which was originally used by the flying school.
This office is housed on the fourth floor, you can see the original Belfast roof trusses.

Before the era of computers you can see the indexed drawers which would have held cards listing all the parts and records of assembly lines, required for building aircraft, and note how large the room is to house these records. There are several women working in this office though the ratio is still high on the volume of men.
