Mary Scott, Carrie Money and Margaret Bowers are in the picture.
Can you name any of the others or tell us when it was taken?

Thanks to Mick Morrison for telling us that Mrs. Eva Linton is the third lady from the left, and Mr. Bob Carter is the man on the far right of the back row.

Mrs Elsie Plews on left and another lady is identified as possibly Gladys Morrison by Barbara Hale.

The tall chimney was from the gas works coke house, can you remember the smell?  The hut partially hidden by the bushes was the tally cabin, where the miners would have picked up their lamps and their tallies before crossing the bridge  in the foreground to enter the mine.  I am sure some of you will remember Fiery Jack that worked in the tally cabin.

Mr McKenna explains something to two pupils. We asked: ”But what and where are they?” David told us: ”The doorway in the background looks very similar to the ones of Mount Grace Priory” and Kim Lindley tell us: ”Ashley Dohring and Lisa Ward are the two little ladies.”
