Some very interesting pictures amongst them.

The text also hits hard, especially with picture #6:

‘Thirty-Eight Bastard Years on the Furnace Front’ (furnace keeper, mess room for No 4 and No 5 furnaces, Clay Lane Ironworks, Middlesbrough, 1983)
Smith: ‘British Steel Corporation were inviting workmen to sell their jobs. The furnace keeper, 62 years old and suffering, applied for redundancy, but was knocked back. His experience on an ageing furnace was valued more than his wellbeing’
