Hoyland Silkstone Colliery, 23rd. November. 1907

A Memento of the Accident at the Hoyland Silkstone Colliery, Near Barnsley, Saturday night. November 23rd. 1907.

When sitting near a cosy fire

'Tis good sometimes to think

Of hardy miners brave and strong,

Who toil near danger's brink.

"Tis good to think that courage true

Is often clearly shown

By men who, struggling daily, have

Inured to hardship grown!"
