Back Alma Street. Easington Colliery, County Durham
A young woman goes home at lunchtime from her job in Hintons, the grocers.
Even late into the strike, massive numbers of police were deployed in the streets of Easington. They escorted to and from the pit the very few miners who had returned to work.
On the rear of the card there is another photograph:
Corner of Arthur Street and Tower Street.
