When Coal was King is a framed, original oil painting by Alexander Millar.

"I first moved to Newcastle when the shipbuilding and other industries along the Tyne, were starting to close down.

It was a poignant time, before the redevelopment of the waterfont, when the last of businesses were winding down. But it became a strangely peaceful place for contemplation (and painting), when herons and other birds started to repopulate the river.

When Coal was King is framed in a dramatic black/sliver, antique look frame
