Summary: 
THE LONDON AND SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY COMPANY’S WORKMEN'S INSTITUTE AT EASTLEIGH From the building of the Carriage and Wagon Works in 1889 until well into the 1960s the economy of Eastleigh was closely linked to the railway industry, which provided the prime source of employment for men and youths wanting to take up apprenticeships. Since its erection in 1891 the Railway Institute had been a constant reminder of the importance of the railway to the town. Standing on the site now occupied by the supermarket of Messrs. Safeway, the Institute was a well- known landmark to generations of Eastleigh's citizens.
