HOMER SYKES ENGLAND 1970 - 1980 EXHIBITION Paris & Kaunas

South Kirkby, Yorkshire. 1979<br />
A free coal delivery, tipped at the ‘back entry’, each household that burnt solid fuel received one ton of loose load delivery every month. <br />
Left for householders to transport it into their own coalhouse. This gave rise to the local youths making a bob or two for themselves by barrowing the coal into storage areas for a couple of shillings.  Pit houses, as they were always known were built in the 1900s by the pit owners and later taken over by the National Coal Board. The coal house at the bottom of the garden contained a toilet and by the 1970s  a  bathroom.<br />

 IF YOU KNOW THE NAMES OF ANY OF THESE PEOPLE I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TOP PUT A NAME TO A FACE
