A Lost World: Photosgraphs by Harold White
These unique photographs capture a lost world. Taken in the 1950s and 60s they show coal miners at work and at leisure in their communities. They were taken by Harold White who was commissioned by the National Coal Board to make a record of coal mines and their communities across Great Britain. His collection of negatives was donated by the late photographer's daughter and form a valuable part of the museum’s photographic collection.
