Hard Labour

Larry Williamson

Hard Labour is a study of a region that was once a thriving centre of industrial activity. Long before information-based industries, factories produced footwear, car parts, stoves and iron fixtures, furniture, tires—the list goes on. Many people made their living working long hours in these often dismal and dangerous factories, but it was a living, a livelihood. This exhibition seeks to shed a little light on this lost local history.
