The signage is authentic with original artwork having been developed from photographs and documents. The packs include some weathered signs that would have been around for decades as well as those that show ownership. The packs cover three periods of British Coal mining:

 

National Coal Board 1947-67: Coal mines were nationalised by the Labour government in January 1947 and came into public ownership. The signage in this particular pack reflects the change in ownership and also has lots of signage that would be around for years before and after this time.

 

NCB 1967-87: mines were still in public ownership, modernisation and corporate branding is evident in the array of signage that began to appear including general health and safety notices. One of the signs reflects the turbulent period of industrial rest that swept through the industry in the early 1980s.

 

British Coal 1987-94: The Coal Industry Act of 1987 saw the Demise of the National Coal Board and the formation of the British Coal Corporation. The loss of a large number of coal fired electricity stations and cheap imports of coal saw the industry go into rapid decline. Privatisation soon followed and the loss of what had been a major industry dwindled to a few mines.
