  Another pic found in the steelworks museum at Lochrist in Brittany.
I looked up the book mentioned in the caption - translates as 'The Bowels of the Earth' - and found it's online, at: http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k6364932w.
There's a chapter on coal mines - and many of the illustrations (to follow) are from Wigan - with a strangely large number being of pit brew lasses.
