Norman Cornish – Behind the Scenes page 64
This is a depiction of a worker, up a ladder to the top of a telegraph pole, in days before obligatory hard-hats and harnesses. The telegraph pole is one situated to the rear of Whitworth Terrace, Spennymoor, where Norman and his family moved in 1967. Norman’s studio looked out over the back of the property, from where he would have seen the image portrayed. The small drawing carries colour notes for future use.
