Barwick Road, Sisters' Pit, strike breakers


Barwick Road, Sisters
Description:
August 1919. This image shows strike breakers at Sisters' Pit (Garforth Colliery) during a miners' strike in 1919. Police protection is being given to the workers, including a sailor who had been drafted in. This strike was one of a number of industrial disputes over wages and conditions in the pits in the years following the First World War, which culminated in the General Strike of 1926; by this time the Sisters Pit had closed but Trench Pit in Garforth was affected. Photograph courtesy of Miss M. Simpson.
