During the 1920s, England existed large gap between rich and poor with unemployment widespread and beggars, many old soldiers, and a common sight on the cities’ streets.

The General Strike in 1926 cause a drop of 13% of the miners’ wages and one millions mine workers had been locked out by mines owners who wanted them to work more hours for less pay. One in four farms were sold to pay to financial obligations and over 600,000 farmers went bankrupt.

In 1928, life in England was documented by the National Geographic photographer, Clifton R. Adams. He has produced color image by using potato starch to present the historical reality of the time, capturing the last of an England that was on the cusp of an irreversible change during about the 1930s Depression.
