Voices in the Coalshed: Haiku Pen Portrait
A picture speaks a thousand words, but can words speak of a picture?
In our series of pen portraits we have attempted to capture in words the essence of individual portraits in our current exhibition Face to Face: Portraits of an Industry:
Pit Brow Girl (1895)
Firm grip on her livelihood:
Flock fly the pit wheel.
Early morning shift
After a long night before:
Didn’t borrow her comb.
