Background: The Primate of Australia, Archbishop Gough, today went down a mine - the Huntley Colliery at Dapto, south of Sydney - to watch and talk with the miners on the coal face. Dr. Gough said he was anxious to learn everything he could about the working conditions of men in Australian industries.
At the pit-top, Dr. Gough talked with a number of mines before donning a miner's helmet and dustcoat to go down the mine. And before doing so, his miner's lamp was checked.
During their lunch-hour, the Archbishop addressed the miners, after which he visited a dairy farm.
Dr. Gough was Suffragan Bishop of Barking from 1948 until early 1959 when he succeeded the late Archbishop Mowll as Anglican Archbishop of Sydney.
