King Edward Mine: An Illustrated Account of Underground and Surface Operations 1897-2001 by Tony Brooks and John Watton
From the foreword by Brian Earl;
"King Edward Mine was never a large mine; by present day standards it is almost insignificant in size; but its influence on the world of mining has been immense. Indeed, much of the world's mining has been done by students who were fortunate enough to have trained there. The account of mine photography is fascinating. One has only to try to take photographs underground to appreciate the skills required. "
There are a range of local cards by Paul Jenkin
