A Atkinson | Only A True Miner Would Know

Only A True Miner Would Know

The Oldham headlamp, the miners headlamp was happily named Oldham and was first introduced during the 1940s to help the miners see better down the pit, the battery could be easily fitted to the helmet and was less likely to start a spark or ignite any gasses that may be lingering in the air whilst they were down the mine. In years gone by Canaries were used to detect gasses in the coal face, if the canaries died then there would be a build up of gasses and the coal miner would have to evacuate the mine shaft.
