A Blenkinsop Locomotive at a Yorkshire Colliery, 1814, (1945). Creator: Unknown

A Blenkinsop Locomotive at a Yorkshire Colliery, 1814, (1945). Man smoking a pipe, and a Blenkinsop steam locomotive at Middleton colliery near Leeds, West Yorkshire. Mining engineer and inventor John Blenkinsop (1783-1831) designed the first practicable steam locomotive, the Salamanca, in 1812. It operated by means of a rack and pinion system. Richard Trevithick had built a steam locomotive in 1805 for Wylam colliery, but it had been too heavy for the cast iron rails it was meant to run on. Middleton colliery laid iron edge rails, which were stronger than those used at Wylam. Blenkinsop went on to build three further locomotives for the colliery, which carried on operating on the railway into the 1830s. In the meantime, further improvements in rail design meant that heavier adhesion locomotives could be used, superseding Blenkinsop's rack and pinion engines. From "British Railways", by Arthur Elton.

Mr. Lloyd George, Mr. Runciman, and Mr. Henderson at the Park Hotel, Cardiff, after their interview

Mr. Lloyd George, Mr. Runciman, and Mr. Henderson at Park Hotel, Cardiff, 1915. On 15 July 1915 about 200, 000 coalminers in south Wales went on strike. The strike was serious because the war effort depended on coal to fuel the navy and for the production of armaments. On behalf of the government Lloyd George imposed the terms of the Munitions of War Act on the coalfield.

Sappers and miners at work, Ypres salient, Belgium, World War I, c1915-c1917. Artist: Realistic Travels Publishers

Sappers and miners at work, Ypres salient, Belgium, World War I, c1915-c1917. Digging a tunnel under Hill 60. Hill 60 was a strategically important high point on the southern edge of the Ypres salient that had been captured by the Germans in 1914 as they advanced towards the sea. The Germans were dislodged from the hill in April 1915 after British engineers detonated exposives placed in tunnels dug into the hill, but recaptured it following a gas attack the following month. Australian troops took over mining operations at Hill 60 in November 1916 and on 7 June 1917, at the beginning of the Battle of Messines, they set off 450, 000 kg of explosives in 19 tunnels. A large part of the hill was destroyed and 10, 000 Germans killed in their trenches in an explosion that was said to have been heard and felt as far away as London and even Dublin. Stereoscopic card.
