Re: More on the Sulphur porters

A fitting wind up to the images and stories presented here and last week Mike.  A little sad to see the gentleman in the last smoking but that is not the worst of what he has been breathing.

As an aside, I worked a few summers in a steel mill in Hamilton while attending university.  They had a 'pickling line' where cold rolled steel went through acid baths to remove the oil from the steel.  The long time workers there did not look very healthy to me and me had only a couple of teeth left in their mouths.  I suspect their clothing did not last long either.
