In an earlier post I described my initial visit to the Holden factory in Elizabeth, which is due to close in mid-October.
I’ve since returned and taken more photographs as things wind down. Although I knew what was coming, it proved just as emotional as that first visit.
This time I spent more time exploring, and the human presence in this state-of-the-art factory were evident. I chatted with workers whose personal effects marked out their personal work spaces.
The posters, hand-drawn murals and indoor plants were a poignant reminder of the people at the heart of this well-organised factory and the Holden brand.
One of many terrific murals painted by (ex) employee Russell.
Adult apprentice Michael who, fortunately , will be continuing his apprenticeship elsewhere after the closure.
