Non-ferrous metal ingots, the raw materials for the Merlin engines which will be produced here, come into the factory on a roller track or conveyor belt and are transferred into separate 'stalls' by these female workers. According to the original caption, "the metal will not go into the foundry until a test of each consignment has been made by the Foundry Laboratory".
