"Joe was on permanent nightshift.  He and his marra were responsible for transporting girders inbye.  This was 1956 before helmets and safety boots were compulsory, each had a safety pin set horizontally above the peak of their cloth cap on which they hooked their cap lamp, both insisted on wearing casual footwear, a folded hessian sack doubled as a shoulder pad.  Joe had the most unlikely physique for the work he did, but no one ever ran short of girders"
