Remembrance Sunday Ceremony

I had the honour of photographing the Remembrance Sunday Ceremony at Philips Park Cemetery which included the Dedication of the Rainbow garden and the unveiling of a plaque in memory of the Miners who died working at the Bradford Pit which was situated on land where the Etihad Stadium now stands.



A detailed gallery of images from the ceremony can be seen on my Brian Stark the Photographer facebook site.

A campaign is underway to erect a monument to commemorate the Miners of the Bradford Pit which once occupied the site where the Etihad stadium now stands today,  A program of events has been organized to gain public  awareness and fundraising.
A reminiscence session for ex miners and families of miners, who worked at the Bradford pit, was held at Beswick library on the 28th February 2015.
