As Philips Factory has now closed and soon there will be houses built on its land, we thought that we would share our pictures of the factory.
Harry Govers, who has been a long serving employee for many years has been kind enough to donate the old pictures of Philips Factory to Historic Hamilton which we will digitise and preserve for future generations to see.
The first batch of pictures that we have published shows some former employees of the once large factory which stretched across Wellhall Road.
Unfortunately, we don’t have the names of the people in the pictures, but perhaps you can help us put some names to faces?
I would like to thank Harry for kindly donating the Philips Factory pictures to Historic Hamilton and in the coming weeks, we will add the rest of Harry’s pictures to our website.
