National Coal Strike of 1912 - searching through slag heap

The National Coal Strike of 1912 - searching through slag heap for pieces of coal to burn.. The national coal strike of 1912 was the first national strike by coal miners in the United Kingdom. Its main goal was securing a minimum wage. After 37 days, the government intervened and ended the strike by passing the Coal Mines Act, establishing a minimum wage for the first time. The strike began at the end of February in Alfreton, Derbyshire and spread nationwide. Nearly one million miners took part. It ended on 6 April after 37 days. The strike caused considerable disruption to train and shipping schedules. Date: 1912

Illustrated London News cover - the Diamond Diggers

Front cover of The Illustrated London News showing two diamond diggers in South Africa, in the valley of the Vaal river, Orange Free State. Accompanied and aided by two native servants, the men sort pebbles that have previously been separated from rubble, examining them thoroughly to find any diamonds that may lie in the heap. The ILN writes, 'The result is often disappointing, but sometimes the diggers are richly rewarded for their toilsome drudgery by the discovery of a glittering prize.' Date: 1872
