Upleatham Mine Management (1904)

This image of the Upleatham Mine Management dating from 1904 was supplied by the great grand-daughter of William Hall, mining engineer; 1852 – 1942, at New Marske, from the original photograph with all named in William Hall’s handwriting. Looking at the midges on display this group also includes the working management of the mine, not just the topside management.

Back row (left to right): B. Robinson, J. ’Darkie’ Reed, Ralph Clark, Dan Bailey, Harry Bowes, Wilf Hardy, Henry Goldfinch.

M. Foster tells us: “That’s my great great great granddad, William Howe I believe. He was born about 1828. Thanks for putting this photo on, giving me that chance to see him.”
