A photograph of a factory worker at the Triumph Works in Coventry, England, taken by Leslie Cardew for the Daily Herald newspaper in 1933. A man, surrounded by vapour, prepares a wire-spoked wheel for the Triumph car assembly line. The first Triumph motor car, the model 10/20, was manufactured by the Triumph Cycle Company in Coventry in 1923. The last, the saloon car Triumph Acclaim, rolled off the British Leyland assembly line in 1984.
