From Foreman to Fork-Lift Truck Driver we are looking to document EVERY employee, from the very start to the very end of the Standard Triumph works, with a brand new online archive. Ex-workers, families and friends can get involved on Saturday 9th September and share any memories, filling in details on the day.
Heritage Open Weekend, where cultural venues right across the country will be open to the public including places and buildings that usually are closed to the public including venues in Coventry.
This Standard Triumph Works Archive is looking to be part of this special event in the centre of Coventry on Saturday, 9th September. A display of Standard and Triumph cars complete with books ex-workers can meet up, sign and fill in any details we can then add to this website.
