Three “photographic rubbings” made with graphite crayons on toner monochromatic prints (80gsm Bond paper). They are hand-embossed imprints of inscriptions of the names of the workers of Gas Light & Coke Company dead in World Wars I and II. The black and white powder texture is the result of graphite used to rub the stones in the memorial garden, in the centre of which a gas lamp burns constantly.
