A lovely photo of the mine, but I think it may be a postcard. Someone has cropped the card (not guilty) but part of Geo. Skilbeck’s name can still be seen.

    Hi Joan,

    The name is SKILBECK not Skilneck, more importantly I think this image has been tampered with or someone has made a grave mistake which I am sure George Skilbeck would have had something to say about. The Photo has the name as Geo Silbeck, missing the K. Very unusual at that time as they were particular and I doubt they would have printed many before that would have been spotted. If it is an original and correct as we see it, then it is well worth keeping hold of.
