Beating the power crisis. With most firms in Britain only allowed to use electricity on three days a week due to the power crisis, all sorts of ingenious methods are being used to keep business going. At the Chrysler U.K. car plant in Coventry, it's a case of driving on dipped headlights as the girl typists work by the light of car headlamps connected to car batteries. And down in Chatham, Kent, a hairdressing saloon has provided its assistants with battery-powered head-lamps", similar to those used by miners. Girls in the car despatch department at Chrysler, working by the light of a car headlamp connected to a battery. January 1974 P018765"
