Sunderland - A lost era

Inspired by seeing a Lampton Tank in steam again at the NYMR Gala, I have revisited this scan of a very fuzzy and purple Agfa slide and hopefully have further improved it since its last airing on the forum. Oh for the quality of today's digital cameras (or phones) back 50 odd years ago. No 42 is preparing a train of empties to take back to the colliery. This was industrial Britain just over 50 years ago. Check out the location today on Google Earth!
