Both were innovators in their respective trades- from very humble beginnings working as a boy in a Lancashire coal mine Joel Settle rose to be a dominating figure in the north Staffordshire coal industry, his innovations changing its face forever. Alfred Baldwin came from a family of Black Country ironmasters to rescue an ailing family ironfoundry from dereliction as a stepping stone to the founding of one of the largest and best known iron and steel manufacturers in the country - in addition his only child became Prime Minister of this country.

Also included is a world heritage site in the Blaenavon Ironworks- an oddity from the Gloucester works designed to transport brine from a mineral spring to a world-renowned hotel- and a very familiar name which once adorned petrol pumps throughout the country. Few of these images have been seen before.
