A photograph of a worker at a steel furnace in England, taken by James Jarche for the Daily Herald newspaper in 1933. A man checks the molten metal in the furnace at Ford's car factory in Dagenham, Essex. The worker's clothes appear to offer limited protection - given the risk of the activity. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
