    Jim, aren't they...ALL the old factories in Syd and MLB were long buildings, North facing with DEEP clerestory windows and skylight roof panels on the skillion roofs behind...and anything post war was closed in with huge sodium lights. My workshop is north facing with a 5 x 2.5 m roller door. I hate it when I have to close it...cheers

    My father worked for Briggs motor bodies post war (they took over and expanded the Supermarine works at Eastleigh airfield), he commented that apart from the 'North-light" skylight roof all illumination came from widely spaced single incandescent lamps (bulbs) in dirty green outside white inside enamelled shades, the Ford motor company bought Briggs and closed the factory for 2 weeks for 'maintenance', on return there were continuous 4 wide strip lights the length of the place spaced ~ every 12-15 feet across the factory floor, no more quiet shadows to hide in...
