1877 Blantyre Pit Disaster Print

Only I could be happy at getting a print for Christmas, of the Blantyre Pit disaster! I’ve seen this print before in a grainy image online, but now owning a very clear print of it, makes me happier. The simple things. As with all photos and prints on Blantyre Project, I like to ensure they’re scanned in at the highest resolution and of a sufficient quality worthy of adding to this growing archive collection. The print allows me to zoom in on the detail of the Blantyre crowd, almost seeing the pain etched on the faces of everybody in that well constructed illustration.
