Description

Presentation refreshed and updated in 2016

Author: Peter Morgan Jones (with acknowledgements to Derek Harding and Gordon Hayward for their contributions)

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 the ever-present fear of death or accident.
