Coffee Break

Here the workers move in close to one of the braziers that gave off some heat in the large cold engineering works on this cold February morning.

One of the workers settles down with his coffee and newspaper, as the other, Jimmy, uses his home-made sword to toast his bacon roll!

Sepia Picture

I then converted the image to sepia, which I thought seemed appropriate for an image that looks as if it might have been taken in the early 1900s.  It was, in fact, taken in 1993.

Sepia +Colour Picture

However, in the sepia image above, it was not very obvious that the brazier was lit, so I made the image at the top of this page, which is mainly sepia but retains some of the original colour:
