Two figures of 'working-class' women with symbols of womens' work embedded in the surfaces; domestic items such as colanders, a shopping basket and clothes pegs form parts of the sculpture. The work shows the ephemera of low paid jobs and housework, including a typwriter, telephone, and clothes hanger. The original commission in the late 1980s aimed for the artwork to reflect the history of nearby Amelia Street as a red-light area. The design by Walsh was accepted by the Art in Public Spaces Research Group, however, it was opposed by Belfast Development Office and Belfast City Council and the project was dropped in 1989. A private developer recommissioned the work and it was erected in 1992.
