What about the workers?

The photographs on a new web site called Working Life bear testimony to the millions of workers who laboured in Britain’s factories, mines and shipyards, on its railways, fishing boats and farms and to the men, women and children who created the wealth of the country and have never received the just recognition, or reward, for their labours. The world of manual work has virtually disappeared in Britain, most of it transported to the sweatshops of the Third World. This site is a celebration of fortitude, skill, courage and resilience.
