Newton Victor were specialists in the production of X-ray equipment for medical and industrial use, and this image shows their factory in Motherwell in 1948, the year that the factory opened. The funding of the National Health Service in 1946 (England) and 1947 (Scotland) created an expanding market for increasingly sophisticated medical equipment to diagnose and treat illnesses, and this company was one of many that provided products to meet this need.
