HRS 1445 Coal horse gin underground for winding

The illustration shows a stylised view of a landing at the top of an underground incline. It is not clear whether or not the corfs of coal being pushed left to right have just been hauled up the incline by the horse gin, or whether there is a load being hauled up the incline at the other end of the rope.
