L S Lowry - Ltd Edition Print - Outside the Mill. The original drawing was completed in 1921, here we see a crowd gathered outside the gates of a Mill. This is how people got work in the Victorian era, and it went onwards to the early part of the 20th Century. You would turn up early to the gates of the Mill and if there was any work they would let in however many they needed. Many of the people who did this wouldn't get work and would end up having to go home.
