Hesketh Cockshead dip

Hesketh Cockshead Dip, December 1922, a fine example of the craft of the old school of collier. The number 78 on the tub is the "tally" number of the men sending the coal out of the pit. On weighing at the pit-head, the weight will be credited to the men for wages payment. Note the size of the lumps of Cockshead coal in the tub.
