The information that accompanies these photographs was compiled in May 1997 after Tom had completed work on the commission. Tom made comments while looking at the contact sheets and Audrey made notes. The sequencing of the negative sheets/contacts does not mirror precise chronological order. Though the order is loosely chronological, it is not exact.
I probably started photographing at Cammell Lairds about three years ago in 1993/4. I took photographs as the yard closed. I probably spent more time on it then than for this commission for the D.P.A. As the men left, I was doing shots of the abandonned work areas and portraits of the men - usually the week they were leaving. I gave them copies.
