Railway workshop workers (1 o 3)

Railway workshop workers

Two different occupational groups are represented by these workers in the foundry at Dunedin’s Hillside railway workshops in 1927. Most of them, wearing overalls and holding hand tools, are manual workers. Their foreman, Sam Wellington, wearing a suit and tie on the left of the picture, may regard himself as a skilled tradesman or manager. However, according to another type of classification, both the foundry workers and Mr Wellington are part of the routine production group of occupations.
