Excellent used condition

Beautiful collection of 5 enamel and metal signs from the Longbridge Plant, Birmingham, England.

1. ‘NO STORING ON WALKS’ 46 x 18cm Enamel
2. ‘NO SMOKING’ 46 x 15cm
3. ‘EMPLOYEES ARE POSITIVELY FORBIDDEN TO RIDE IN THIS LIFT’ 20 x 10cm
4. ‘WARNING MEN WORKING’ 20 x 15cm
5. ‘DANGER THIS MACHINE MIST NOT BE OPERATED’ 26 x 13cm

Opened in 1905, by the late 1960s Longbridge employed around 25,000 workers, building cars including the original Mini. In the Second World War, the main plant produced munitions and tank parts, while the nearby East Works of Austin Aero Ltd at Cofton Hackett produced Short Stirling and the Hawker Hurricane aircraft.

Since the collapse of MG Rover in 2005, part of the site has been redeveloped for commercial and residential usage and these signs were removed from the original plant.

Please view the photos as these show the condition and form part of the description.

Will be carefully wrapped and shipped using track and trace. Collection is possible.
