The UON Library’s Cultural Collections team is saddened to report the passing of Mr George Davison, who kindly made his collection of photographs from his time in the mining industry available to us and permitted us to publish them.

Mr Davison was a mine worker in Myuna and Newvale No. 2 Collieries.  After his retirement, he was for some time the Curator of Richmond Vale Mining Museum on the site of the former Richmond Main Colliery.

We extend our sincere sympathy to his family and friends.
