Colliery Reconstruction in the No.2 (Maesteg) Area

Scope and Content

A series of photographs charting the progress of colliery reconstruction in the No.2 (Maesteg Area) of the South Western Division of the National Coal Board. These photographs cover the period from 1950 through to 1958 and, apart from a few shots of shaft damage, have all been taken on the surface. This collection is an important record of the huge re-organisation of the coal industry following nationalisation in 1947.
