This is my first design, it was completed just 2 weeks before the disastrous news about the closure of the steelworks. I am selling this shirt at cost price as I want to help raise awareness.Although Teesside steelworks, as we know it now, was originally founded in 1917 by Dorman Long, Teesside’s first blast furnace was built in 1851. It was around this time that the area was given the name Ironopolis.Note. The population of Middlesbrough in 1801 was 25, by 1851 it had risen to 7,600! The shirts are good quality & the print is bold vinyl.
