Hair is best known for the folio volume A Series of Views of the Collieries in the Counties of Northumberland and Durham, published in 1839. This is a volume of engravings after watercolours by T.H.Hair which show in its forty-two pictures particular collieries and details of the workings. The accompanying text by M.Ross describes the pictures and the activities of the various collieries in considerable detail. One of Hair's most famous paintings is "Hartley Colliery after the Disaster" (1869). T.H.Hair's paintings and his book are important for they give an accurate picture of industrial Northumberland and Durham in the middle of the nineteenth century.
