The Edwardian era was the heyday of the picture postcard with hundreds of millions of cards being mailed each year. The postcard was the text message of its day, and with such a huge market, the range of subjects featured on postcards was enormous. Coal mining was the subject of hundreds of different cards. Just about every colliery in Britain appeared on a postcard, and mining activities both above and below ground were featured. Many of the cards were beautifully tinted, introducing the working life of the collier and his family to an ever-wider audience. Locally produced cards commemorated major and minor events in and around colliery villages
