The great advantage of this treatment is the generalisation of the scene - it might have taken place almost any time in the last 50 years!
(And of course a group of men standing round with their hands in their pockets watching someone else at work is universal, too Wink)
Excellent.

Everyman times five. There's something universal in this.
It reminds me of a lot of Frank Meadow Sutcliffe's work in 19th Century Whitby. See here, here, here for comparison.
