Within months of Ford Motor Company (England) Limited being incorporated on 8 March 1911, Trafford Park was busy building Ford's 'Universal car' - the Model T. This photo was taken before the introduction of the moving assembly line in 1914, for which Henry Ford was so revered and which allowed Ford cars to be produced efficiently and economically. From 1911 – 1927 over 300,000 'Tin Lizzies' drove out of Trafford Park.
