Dudley blast furnaces OP02658

Blast furnace, Russell'??s Hall, Dudley, West Midlands, 1859. Mr Mills, dilute albumen print. Mr Mills, otherwise unknown as a photographer, recorded the blast furnaces at Russell'??s Hall, west of Dudley, when the industry was producing a vast number of iron products, including nails, boilers, vices and chains. Coal mining around Dudley had been recorded in the early 13th century and the area was famous for the manufacture of iron nails in the early 16th century. By the late 18th century Dudley was at the centre of England'??s iron industry, and the region was dubbed the '??Black Country'?? because of the blackening of the landscape by the coal and iron industries. Russell'??s Hall itself was pockmarked by clay pits and coal shafts, and significant urban development only took place after the Second World War

Hagg Windmill, Lincolnshire AA80_05385

HAGG WINDMILL, Hagworthingham Mill, Lincolnshire. A tower mill with aluminium roof, built in 1810 for cereal milling. It is pictured here in 1935 when it was evidently being used by R H Ellis and Sons for milling flour. The motion of the sails has caused them to appear blurred in the picture. It ceased working circa 1943. Photographed by Herbert Edward Sidney Simmons in June 1935
