"A photograph of smiling miners returning to their homes in Bedwas, Wales following successful strike action, taken by Edward Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper. The South Wales Miners Federation had tried for many years to gain the recognition they felt they deserved. Eventually, following a prolonged 'stay-down' strike in Bedwas colliery, they got the deal they wanted. 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."
