This building is part of the oldest surviving structure that was part of the munitions factory. The store was originally intended to store materials for the turning shop, foundry, and projectiles factory. Later, it was turned into an office space for the technical department.
A former employee recalls: ‘In the store, I handled the admin for materials that had been issued. The people from the drawing office and the factories came to request materials or parts. […] There was a card index of stocks, and what I’d handed out and to whom. It was a good system. I was never aware of any squabbles, shortages, far too much being ordered, and so on. For the card index, you had to write between the lines on the card. That’s when I started writing really small, because the space was so tight. My writing is still really small.’
Events and exhibitions venue Taets Art and Event Park is currently based here.
