When Coal Was King by Derbyshire Times
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"The Derbyshire Times" asked its readers for their memories and photographs of their families and friends and many nostalgic contributions were received. These are reproduced here together with images from the "Derbyshire Times"' own archives. Some stories are amusing, some are emotional particularly when recalling the mining disasters that have occurred over the years with inevitable loss of life. Rescue efforts were often made by the miners with total disregard for their own safety, a trait which typifies their character. This book celebrates the lives of those involved in the mining industry, who still have a fond and maintained association with it.
