Coal mining was still a major industry in England in the 1920s. This image shows a very large colliery with not only the chimneys, shafts and buildings but also the means to transport the coal to where it was needed, in this case both a railway and the River Wear.

The Stadium of Light ground of Sunderland Football Club now stands on the site of the old Wearmouth Colliery which closed in 1993. The pit worked seams of coal under the North Sea.
