    This is me, I think, probably toward the end of the year. I started that year after I dropped out of a Maths PhD course at UoN having previously worked there in similar circumstances. I am wearing shorts so this toward the end of the year.

    The picture surprises me a little because I am seen dragging, taking the pipes and loading onto the conveyor, when that was the privileged but hard-earned job of my uncle and his offsider. In the burning, the pipes could move and lean against each other in odd ways. Taking a leant-on pipe could bring a cascade of leaners, causing broken pipes and possible falls on the draggers. I think this was posed; I did not have the experience and I am only taking the bends on top.
