And big ditto from me too Algy.

 

When you see images like these showing what was going on at the time and the conditions they worked in (especially in the bottom two photos) you suddenly realise just how hard and big the job really was considering they didn't have the equipment we have these days and you also realise how brave (or desperate) the workers were.

 

It all looks like chaos (in a strangley organised way) and so very dangerous.

 

Fascinating to see, and thanks again Algy. :wink:
