Battle of Orgreave: the miner and the copper

Don McPhee

£150.00

It is one of the abiding images of the 1984 coal strike - Guardian photographer Don McPhee's picture of a picketing miner facing up to an officer.

The two men were on opposite sides of one of the bitterest industrial disputes of the 20th century. Golf balls, stones and sharpened coins had been flying, police horses were about to charge, and the leader of Britain's striking mineworkers, Arthur Scargill, had been arrested in that same field outside Orgreave cokeworks, near Rotherham, South Yorkshire, a few days earlier.
