  Comments G'Day, Came across your website whilst searching for info on pits girls. I have a photo/postcard from circa 1905-10 of a group of 4 Wigan pit girls, that My Great Uncle had sent to my grandmother. My Uncle was from North Wales who went to work in the coal mines in the Wigan area. Do you have an email address so that I can forward you a copy for your records here on this website. Perhaps someone can identify who they are.
