The caption reads 'Female workers at the Wigan pits, in England, at the off-loading point'. It looks as if they're manhandling full tubs out of the cage which has come up from pit bottom. A heavy job for the lasses.

The tubs are not on rail lines, but on slot landings, large strong smooth metal plates. It definitely would have been an arduous task , manhandling those full tubs.
