Miners from Fernhill Colliery, Glamorgan, South Wales

A black-faced miner, carrying his small daughter, his wife shielding her face, at Fernhill in the Rhondda. He has just emerged from 292 hours underground in a 'stay-in' miners' strike at Fernhill Colliery. He is watched by a throng of local people, some smiling and applauding. Policemen can be seen in the background. Date: circa 1936

Getting ready for school - The Promotion of Health Poster

Idyllic domestic scene inside a family kitchen. Older children are getting ready for school and while one daughter of the house sits and has her hair brushed by mother, another conscientiously washes her hands in a downstairs bathroom. Son of the house, smart in his school uniform, dutifully polishes his shoes and a chubby baby is already out in the garden in a pram, cheerfully shaking a rattle. Grandma does the washing up and even the cat tends to her kittens in a basket underneath the table. No sign of a patriarchal presence but presumably he's the sole breadwinner and has already gone off to work. I think I may have used too many adverbs in this caption.
c.1950
