My Grandmother was born in Kearsley in 1895 and her father Thomas Latham and her husband grandpop were coal miners as well as many of her Whitley family where miners too. Loved all the pictures but really loved the coal miner's photos it showed how hard their work was. I thought how old some of the men were but then I thought it was there work that made them look so old as many coal miners did not live a long life. I would love to hang the photo of the coal miner pushing the wagon full of coal today on my wall with a quote saying don't wind about your job, look what grandfather did.

Fscinating site, congratulations. I would contest your description of "Roundheads" though. Both sides in the Civil War wore their hair as the fancy took them - see portraits of Cromwell and Ireton for example

I've really enjoyed looking at your site.
I'm currently researching pictures on behalf of Baracuta, who are putting together their company history. I've seen one of their early adverts on your website, and I was wondering if you have any more. I would be very grateful if you could let me know.
Many thanks and best,
Emma O'Neill
