A group of tinplate workers. The ladies are holding the "tin slashers" knife, a long blade used to force apart plates of tin that have become stuck during the rolling process. Pictured centre left in the striped tunic is Elizabeth Rees (nee Williams) the Great Grandmother of the contributor.

Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales's picture
Great photo! So much information in there about the process, the women workers and what they wore. Is this Glan Rhyd tinplate works?
