Yorkshire MPs visiting Thorncliffe Ironworks.jpg

Newton Chambers were always keen to show off their works to important visitors, not least to show their devotion to war work during the two World Wars. And what better to transport these Yorkshire MPs round the works in 1943 than one of the works locomotives. Social distinctions are very apparent with the workers in the background all wearing flat caps while the MPs sport three-piece suits and hats.
