Trade Street Like a small town, the factory has its own street names. From the early days at Bournville until the late 1970's the area leading to the Alternative Exhibition building (originally called the Pipe Shop) was known as "Trade Street". Above and to your right, each side of the street was lined with trade workshops, including a large printing and box-making department, all busy providing services necessary to maintain the fabric of the factory and production of the Company's products. At one stage over 55 distinct and diverse trades were employed on the site, such as engineers, builders, carpenters, painters, signwriters, electricians, plumbers, pipe fiters, mould makers, pattern makers, machine fitters, sheet metalworkers, platelayers, millwrights, belt makers, saw doctors, printers, case makers and gardeners.
