"From beneath a fiery floor - from a fiery furnace - this mother drags the glowing ingots and carries them off to other furnaces or presses, or rolling-mills or hammers, and the workmen tell you, as the policemen do in America, 'Mind your step; safety first." - a description from the book, "Pictures of War Work in England."
