Diggers in a Hostelry

Gerrard Winstanley and Digger colleagues at a hostelry. If you substitute the clay pipes for electronic cigarettes, and the tankards for pint glasses, then this picture would have a canny resemblance to a scene from a present day Diggers’ Festival meeting in the backroom of The Anvil pub in Wigan

 

Thanks Clifford for letting us use them!
