The Magnificent 47
About the work
THE LAST SIX PRINTS OF THE EDITION...Framed poster. These retired, sleeping symbols of an industrial age when mass production was a trend being learned from an empire fast expanding and in demand of it's wares, perfected and paid for in the the human sacrifice of a hard labour and short life-span of the working classes. Attended to day and night, day-in and day-out - for an age; filled with coal, loaded with ware, heated to the extreme, left to cool, emptied, filled with coal, loaded with ware - so the cycle went on and on, and on - until a trend change in in new technologies, and a national consciousness for social change rendered them obsolete and left to stand, or in the majority - bulldozed and built over. Here stand the forty seven of the oft-quoted two or three thousand that imposed their shape, character, demand and belching smoke onto the industrial landscape of the six towns - The Industrial Back-bone of Staffordshire. Whatever your point of view on the symbolism of these mighty structures, whatever they represent to you; they are indeed - The Magnificent 47.
