Tinplate Shop, Linthouse Shipyard, 1916

Men and women working in the tinplate shop at Alexander Stephen & Son's Linthouse Shipyard, c 1916.

Unskilled men and women were employed in the shipyards during the First World War, when there were labour shortages caused by the departure of tens of thousands of men to serve with the British armed forces.
