We’d thought we’d fly the flag for British manufacture in this year of Jubilee celebrations. Here at our Suffolk workshop we have over 40 people trained in skills that are now rather rare in the UK. With all the jubilee celebrations going on we thought we just had to have a bit of fun and challenge our photographer David Lam to come up with a suitably beautiful jubilee image to celebrate our heritage of British manufacturing.
I was set the task of finding a vintage flag and courtesy of a lucky ebay bid we had the flag – now all we needed was the setting. Dave went off to see if he could find a suitable place to shoot our beautiful jubilee image here at the Jim Lawrence site.
Frankly I was slightly worried when he found his place of inspiration. “It’s got great texture” he told me as I stood, unconvinced, in the ugliest, dirtiest corner of the welding room. I really don’t think that the lads in the workshop were that sure either when they saw us piling in with lots of boxes and fabric!
