Soldering a Vanguard.


Work being carried out in a Vanguard motor car at Motor Assemblies who were situated in Tuam Street 1940s - 1965..

Date: 1949.

Highly Commended entry in the 2016 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt.

From back of photo:  Soldering or lead-loading joints which would otherwise not be waterproof.  This operation calls for patience an d a "know-how" complex.  Less solder is used on a Vanguard than on many other makes of car body.

NZ Motor Assemblies Ltd factory on the South side of Tuam Street at the Fitzgerald Avenue corner of Christchurch NZ.
