Images of the Brayton Domain Collieries
J Pattinson, chemist of King Street, Aspatria, photographed daily life both above and below ground at the Brayton Domain Colliery.  Some of these images were produced as a series of postcards.

I'd be delighted if anyone could provide me with any pictures or  postcards which are missing from here.  Pictures of Harriston village are especially welcome.  I'm willing to buy the original, or would accept a greyscale scan at 300dpi. Contact me if you can help
