Workshop of the Empire

​Don’t miss this fascinating photographic exhibition exploring the world of work in 19th and early 20th century North Lanarkshire.

It features superbly detailed historic images of miners working at the coal face, steel workers hand-charging at furnaces, wagon-builders and boiler makers on the shop floor. Together they provide a unique insight into the skills, exertion and ingenuity of workers at the height of the Industrial Revolution. This is an opportunity to view rarely seen photographs from our Local Studies and Archives collections.
