Tools of a Slate Miner

I was quite taken with the tool desk (that is on wheels) I have noticed more recently that it must have been “the” mobile joinery and mechanical equipment of the day as I have seen it in the Lancashire and Yorkshire Mills that I have seen since.

Photographers just love rust and I am sorry but I thought that this was great.
