SK3771 : Office with statues

taken 1 month ago, near to Chesterfield, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Office with statues
Office with statues
Outside the former offices of the National Union of Mineworkers stand two fine statues of William Harvey MP and James Haslam MP who represented Chesterfield as Labour members of parliament.

Haslam was Secretary of the Derbyshire Miners. Harvey was Financial and Corresponding Secretary. Both were elected as Labour members in 1910, when the union dropped its allegiance to the Liberal party.

The statues were erected in 1918. They seem to have had a clean for the planned centenary celebrations - see SK3771 : Chesterfield - Derbyshire Miners Association offices for how they looked ten years ago
