Painting by Gilbert Daykin, 1886-1939. "The Results of Labour", 1930-1939. Oil on board, 60x50cm in frame 73x62.5x7.5cm. Design for a poster for the Staveley Coal and Iron Company at the time of increased coal prices. A smiling miner looks appealingly to the viewer, and offers the results of his labour. Several different versions were painted and printed, among various ventures to offset the fall in coal sales. The neat steel supports and general atmosphere are a contrast to the reality of working underground.
