Working Men's Club

This club, photographed in 1966, was in the coal mining community of Horden, in County Durham. This was a time when men who worked together played together, an age when men kept their caps on to drink a serious pint and had to be won over one by one by visiting entertainers. But perhaps this Southerner's camera failed to capture the genuine warmth he experienced from these hardy Northerners. From my book, "Being English"
