Fascinating images from North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre's Archive and Local History Collections highlight the companies and the workers that helped North Lanarkshire achieve its status as a major industrial powerhouse in the mid-nineteenth to early twentieth century
We marvel at the skill, ingenuity and sheer physical effort exerted by miners working at the coalface, steel workers hand-charging at furnaces, wagon-builders and boiler makers on the shop floor. We celebrate the quality and variety of the goods they produced for a global market and explore their journey to a modern industrial workforce.
