Labour Day: Men at work

In the hey-day of the industrial era Metters factory was Subiaco’s second largest, employing many locals between 1911 and 1986. The factory operated for more than 80 years from what is now the Home Base site.
 
Well-known Metters products included stoves, hot water heaters, bathtubs, windmills and enamel ware.
 
This image from around 1937 shows factory workers operating an enamelling oven. The factory produced enamelled ware including cooking pots, mugs, jugs and more. 

See it for yourself. The Subiaco Museum collection houses several well-known Metters objects including pots, kitchenware and the popular Kooka stove dating back to the 1920s.
