Storyboard Text

  • This is Thomas Langley. He is 9 years old and he works at the Eton Union Workhouse from 9am until 10pm as a rope picker.
  • this is the room he works in. He sits in here everyday in a stuffy room full of tiny rope fibres flying in the air. He said "we have to keep up the work or the boss gets mad. but it hurts so bad to carry on. our hands end up bleeding".
  • "it's horrible" i do all this hard work all day every day, just for an uncomfortable bed and one meal. They aren't all that nice. They promised us good nutritious meals. but all we get is bread and gruel".
  • "But Sir, this is only 1 penny! please can i be payed what i was promised?". "TAKE IT OR YOU GET NOTHING!" The master never gave us what we were meant to be payed.
  • "You never make any friends so you are always alone. i had a friend who came here once. his job was to get under the machines to cut thread. one day the master told them to come out so he could turn on the machine, he didnt hear him and he got killed".
  • "I've had a few injures myself. i broke my arm when the master punshed me when i was late to work.he told me to suck it up but it really hurts to work with it. i just wish i could get out of here".
