Memories of Ilkeston’s Mines Rescue

editorial image

Another image from Barbara Harrison’s collection features this week.

The album of images belonged to Mrs Harrison’s late husband David.

He inherited the pictures from his father.

They show Ilkeston Mines Rescue Centre, the rescuers who worked there and some exercises and rescue missions.

Some of the pictures are on show at the Erewash Museum as part of the Mining Memories exhibition.

The display, in the John Lally Gallery, runs until July 24.
