The Beginnings of Industry by fishers

The Beginnings of Industry

Katharine and I have been away for the weekend visiting friends in north-east Derbyshire. We spent a couple of hours in Chesterfield during the journey, and took the oportunity to visit the Church of St Mary and All Saints.

There are several interesting and attractive stained glass windows in this church, and this shot shows a small section of one of them.

The window was installed in 1984 and was funded by the people of Chesterfield to commemorate the 750th anniversary of the church, and showing the lives, work and industry of Chesterfield people throughout that period. This section shows the arrival of steam power in the 19th century, with the development of railways, mining and factories.
