1984 Miners' strike poster
« on: April 12, 2012, 06:30:54 AM »
It's amazing what you find when you start sorting through old boxes huh?  ;D

This poster from Sept 1984 emerged from one such box, I'd totally forgotten it. It dates from the miners' strike, and was brought over by a group of French miners who came to a rally in support of their British counterparts.

Size is 90cm x 60cm

Cheers!

Me too Keith! :)  I'm finding all sorts of stuff I'd forgotten I had, including a postcard from the Women's Peace Camp at Greenham Common. I have a box of badges as well - shall have to get those out and photographed too someday.
Cheers!
