    I was an apprentice at Vickers Elswick works around 1978 to 1982. One day a small group of us along with the in house photographer took a van stuffed to the brim with wooden boxes to Bamburgh castle. The boxes contained a HUGE collection of negatives going back to the 19th century many were glass plates. during the day we took out a few to look. Fascinating and amazing sights we saw of every element of the life of that huge factory.
    Since that day I have wondered where those images are. Could these be from that collection?
