Volumes of newspaper cuttings concerning a variety of aspects within the coal industry before nationalisation. A number of the volumes concern strikes and stoppages, mainly the Tonypandy riots, 1910-1911. Another of the volumes focusses on welfare matters with cuttings concerning topics such as workmen's halls, recreation grounds and pithead baths, whilst other volumes give a wider view of the south Wales coal industry and industry related topics. The volumes were kept on file by the National Coal Board, however it is unclear who compiled them and how they came into the possession of the National Coal Board.
