Birmingham Small Arms (BSA) and Singer Motors: misc_bsa&singer177

Aerial view of the BSA Works sandwiched between the GWR and the Grand Union Canal seen from the South west

Aerial view of the BSA Works in 1920 taken from the South west. The main BSA site is a long rectangular plot sandwiched between the Great Western Railway and the Grand Union Canal in the foreground. The original Victorian Factory can be seen in the right of this area, while on the left is the Truscon Works, a four storey concrete framed building constructed in 1915. The Waverley Works site is the other side of the railway, with what would become the Singer Car Factory visible near the centre of the picture. Golden Hillock Road Bridge and Small Heath & Sparkbrook station are to the left of the Truscon Works.
