Passport Portraits of Yesteryear No.3

Continuing the series of passport photographs from my collection. Peruse and wonder. 

Horace Charles Meadwell.

A coal miner from Derbyshire.

It is 1920, the Great War is over, British coal exports have plummeted and domestic demand is stagnant. The prospects of continued employment in the industry are thin.

Horace Meadwell is going to Canada.

He is nineteen years old.
