Coal Queens- Paperback

£1.50

Coal mining was more than a job it defined the identity of those who worked in the mines and their loved ones. Being related to a coal miner came with privileges including the ability to compete for the title of Coal Queen. Local winners were put forward to national competitions with great prestige and the opportunity to be the face of the coal industry. Find out what competing meant to the participants, what they won and how winning shaped their lives.

A National Coal Mining Museum for England publication compiled by Anne Bradley & Rebecca Hudson. Paperback.
