    A man works in a small coal mine at the bottom of his garden.

  • Description

    Unissued / unused footage - dates and locations may be unknown / unclear.

    Location of events unknown.

    A man walks out of his house in his vest and trousers. His wife and two children wave goodbye to him from the doorway. The man makes his way to a small 'one-man' coal mine shaft and we see him climbing down inside and working there alone with a pickaxe and wagon.

    The man's wife takes a bucket to the mine (it is just at the end of their garden) and fills it with coal.
