More photos from the Wettergren sewing factories from 1946.
There's a factory nurse who mainly deals with accidents at work.
This photo is from the main office.
These photos are from the subsidiary company "Dress". The cut fabric is packed with the notions needed and travels through a tube system from the cutting room to the sewing room. The seamstresses sit along a conveyor belt which transport the garment from seamstress to seamstress as they have finished their detail. This was very modern at the time (and I remember the same system from the 70s when my mother worked in a sewing factory).
The quality control is strict and all garments are tried on a live model.
Som jag skrev på engelska under en av bilderna minns jag transportbanden från sömmerska till sömmerska från när min mamma jobbade på Aspens på 70-talet. Wettergrens påstående om hur modernt systemet var 1946 verkar nog stämma; om det fortfarande användes 30 år senare menar jag.
