9780113000517: Images of Industry : Coal

Numerous buildings and structures associated with coalmining have been made redundant by the recent and rapid contraction of the industry and many now face a uncertain future. The photographs in this book form part of a comprehensive record of coal industry architecture made by the Royal Commission in response to that threat. From pit-head baths and colliery headgear to model housing and miners' memorials, these images capture the full variety of the coal industry's impact on the environment. The supporting text explains the history and development of building types that have been taken for granted up till now, but which, looked at in detail, tell the fascinating story of a once-mighty industry.
