Worker Making Tea, Bilston Steelworks

Between 1976 and 1978, workers at Bilston Steelworks and other companies, became the subjects of Nick Hedges' photographic observation of working life. The photographs were published in 'Born to Work' (Pluto Press, 1982) and depict stark images of factory life. This image depicts the blast furnace team at the works.
