For May Day I have been collecting some pictures of people at work around my area.
I got the idea to do this post by seeing a few other pictures that people had taken around town of people at work. Last year, when I was working compiling local histories, it was such pictures of people at work in their everyday lives that were the most prized finds. Work is what we do for a majority of our lives but we rarely have pictures of ourselves doing it.
