Front cover of Mrs. Broom's membership card of Eccles House war workers Club, 14-16 Abbey Grove, Eccles. The card is blue with black lettering. These clubs were established to provide a focal point for war workers who had been posted away from their homes to work on essential Industry. They began in 1940 and became somewhat redundant towards the end of the war. Although they had been initiated with itinerant workers in mind, Eccles House attracted a greater proportion of local people, particularly women, who had found employment in essential Industries in the Trafford Park area.
