Cee’s B&W Challenge: Hands

hands

This sculpture of two clasped hands was unveiled in 2001 to commemorate the centenary anniversary of the accidental death of four workmen in a previously sealed well on July 12th 1901. One man was overcome by gas at the bottom of the well, and three others in turn died while trying to rescue their stricken colleagues.

‘Helping Hands’ can be found on Three Mills Green, East London
