One of the greatest books of British society. However, due to the truthfullness regarding the exploitation of workers from Wales, seldom mentioned by the 'establishment'. A truly great work that if read would educate so many to the history of South Wales. As for the image, a pleasing composition, great sky and summer feel. Well seen.
