Overalls make me think of two things: the 1970s, and a questionable fashion trend, and WORK. Although my Great-Grandfather, Thomas Polland, is not wearing overalls in this photo, I am certain he must have worn them at some time in his work as a sett-maker * in the Mountains of Mourne, County Down, Northern Ireland in the late 1800s.

His whole life chipping away—
A face of granite.
