This photograph shows the parts of a Lancaster bomber being assembled. At the back of the photograph, facing away from the viewer, are two nearly or newly completed aircraft, their airscrews visible attached to the wings. The factory buzzes with activity as important war work is undertaken. We have been unable to trace any other copy of this photograph.
Provenance: from the collection of Philip J R Moyes, author of many books on the RAF, most notably The Pictorial History which ran to several volumes.
