Warning

By woolybill1
Pithead warning notice on cast iron from Woodhorn Colliery - now Woodhorn Museum, Ashington, Northumberland.
From a visit on a very sunny day a couple of weeks ago.
Even the original is hard to read; for those viewing in black and white I have added a Version in reversed tones which is easier to read in some light conditions.

Thanks to all who contributed votes, comments and awards over the weekend; your support has been fantastic 🙂 and most welcome.
Thanks for looking.

The way things are going just now, we could see people out with their old prams trying to gather any coal left behind.

I am half way through a book called Black Gold by Jeremy Paxman.
A real eye opener, if one was ever needed, as to the total reliance on coal as it built the Empire and the scandalous way in which miners have always been treated !.........................Enough !

An image to spark debate and poignancy for those of us old enough to remember those dreadful years. A certain PM's actions...
