Although the strike directly affected tens of thousands of miners who lost their jobs, it clearly affected many thousands more indirectly. In the written background to his photographs, Martin Shakeshaft tells of the 165,000 people on strike at it’s height.

Welty said, “Neither of my parents had come from homes that could afford to buy many books, but though it must have been something of a strain on his salary, as the youngest officer in a young insurance company, my father was all the while carefully selecting and ordering away for what he and Mother though we children should grow up with.”(Welty, 391) I remember my father giving me his old Hardy Boys books when I was about eight years old.
