Description

Engraving by Francis Chesham after a drawing by George Robertson. One of a set of six engravings published by J & J Boydell of 90 Cheapside, London. Labourers, horses and a donkey are shown beside a large winching device and tall chimney. The area surrounding the village of Broseley, Shropshire, was central to the coal mining industry. Abraham Darby I (c 1678-1717) developed coke smelting in nearby Coalbrookdale, which revolutionised the production of iron, and helped start the Industrial Revolution.
