Brief Description: Women employees leaving the Biscuit Factory at dinnertime
Subject Date: Around 1910
 
Full Description: All employees had to be out of the factory during break times or else face a 6d fine. Most employees went home for their breakfast and dinner breaks, as many people lived nearby in areas like Newtown. There was a Breakfast Room for those that lived too far away. Men and women left the factory separately.
