Sharpe's Pottery Worker's Contract

This fascinating document gives an insight into what it would have been like for many of the local inhabitants in late C19th Swadlincote. The majority of the populous were employed in either the pottery or coal mining industry. A 12 hour working day, paying for your own gas for lighting your work station and being paid for each individual piece you made are just some of the telling facts you can take from this one document.
