About this image
Elders' of the Zion Methodist Chapel, Stonebroom. The chapel was recently demolished after suffering serious mining subsidence and the site is now a car park for the new chapel. The man on the far right was George Haston, born 1854 in Flintham, Notts. Like many agricultural laboring families of the mid 19th century, the Ha(r)stons were forced by poverty and agricultural recessions to move to the newly opened coal fields of North East Derbyshire. Note the variety of male headgear! Does anyone recognize anyone else in this photo?
Brian Hastings asks - 'Are any of the Harris family on this photo?'
