Workers Wanted (Mural by Louis Statham)

Workers Wanted (Mural by Louis Statham)

Louis Statham is a prolific painter of murals, often with historic subjects. Here a job advertisement by the Avondale Borough Council, reproduced on the concrete block wall next to the Avondale Rest Home and Hospital in Rosebank Road. (Do they want to inspire the retirees to go back to work? Or entice the tired looking characters into the rest home? And what about women?)

The City Daily Photo theme for December is “Worker” – click here to find workers from all over the world.

    It looks as though the mural is set in the 1930s depression. Even in the retirement home, there would be very few who were of working age during the Depression. I like this take on the theme.
