The history of Eltham in just 20 objects ........Nu 8, down at the Arsenal

Now there is every chance that none of these eleven women came from Eltham or even lived here, but on the other hand they might have done.

The Progress Estate is testimony to the many people who came from all over the country to work at the Arsenal.

And as we uncover more personal stories of the hutments it is fitting that this picture should be included in the 20 objects

There is no printed caption and it has been left to someone to write “Woolwich Arsenal Girls.”

Location; Woolwich

Picture; Woolwich Arsenal Girls, date unknown, from the collection of David Harrop
