Image of Miners at Shaft Top

YKSMM: 2004.2391

A black and white image showing miners standing at the top of the shaft inside the winding gear at Hem Heath Colliery.

Harold White was commissioned by the NCB to photograph coal mines and their mining communities across Great Britain between 1950 and 1960. These images were donated by the late photographer’s daughter. The collection includes images from England, Scotland and Wales as it was thought that such an important collection should remain together.
