From the lithographic series "Pictures of War Work in England," which depicts the war effort of World War I. The series was so popular the works were reproduced and published in book format, using the same title. This is one of the original lithographs that inspired the 1917 publication.

"Away off in the hills, but near the sea, is this great guld fixed - a great gash - and in this is the mine, like the open mines of America, though no longer worked. But all around and about are others working, from which ore is taken, while all the hills are covered by shafts to-day bringing up more ore than ever before." - Joseph Pennell.
