Seddonville coal on display

Coal from the Seddonville State Mine was a centrepiece of the display by the Mines Department in the 1906-07 International Exhibition at Christchurch. The government was keen to show that coal from its new state mines was as good, if not better, than that produced by the Westport Coal Company, which had its own display.
