Down The Pit


Category: Tags: ,


This A4 booklet contains an interesting  photographic record exploring the now, largely, forgotten world of the coal mining industry in South Wales. The author details the comradeship of miners below ground and the strong community above it. He also shows the cost to lives spent working in filthy, blackness stalked by ever-present fear of death or accident.
