About the exhibit

Identifying number:
Pay tin from Elliot Colliery. Metal, cylindrical with hinged lid. These were no longer used after about 1930. This one was found in the timber yard of Elliot Colliery. You would hand over your docket number and your pay tin would be handed over to you - you didn't keep the same number, and you had to check your pay yourself.
