TOIL: A history of working lives in Industrial Lanarkshire TOIL Logo

26 April – 28 August

TOIL is a fascinating photographic exhibition exploring the world of work in the 19th and early 20th century. It features superbly detailed archival images of miners working at the coal face, steel workers hand-charging at furnaces, wagon-builders and boiler makers on the shop floor. Together they provide a unique insight into the skills, exertion and ingenuity of workers at the height of the Industrial Revolution in Britain.
