Thames Foundry, Dagenham Works JLP01_01_048_18

Ford Motor Company Works, Thames Foundry, Dagenham, Havering, Greater London. A view of the new foundry under construction at the Ford Motor Company Works, showing the east end of the building with reinforcing steel, framework and concrete pouring in progress.
The foundry opened in 1957 and cost £ 7.5 million to build. The building was a two-storey reinforced concrete structure, almost a quarter of a mile in length. The new facilities included kitchens and a canteen, toilet accommodation, a medical centre and a compressor house. There was also an ancillary building, 700 ft in length, roads to the site, a settling tank and ponds. It later closed in 1984
