View of the Main Gate to the Royal Ordnance Factory from the South West showing the trams. With so many employees coming from Liverpool, the Corporation had to extend its bus and tram services to the factory, buying old buses from London to fill the gaps. Until 1943 they were marked 'Simonswood' to confuse saboteurs.
