On Safari in Cornwall (6)

On Safari-with Harry Safari in Cornwall.
Our next stop on this wet and misty day - we call at ---
Carn Galva Tin Mine - This name means "Rock Pile at the Lookout Place."For more info on Carn Galva click HERE.
Interesting that this Tin Mine did'nt do very well.

I love this shot, also being in B/W you get the feel of the men who worked here - all those years ago.


Here's the Engine house and the Mine in B/W together



I hope you all have enjoyed our Safari around Cornwall, here I would like to thank Harry Safari for his happy go lucky and sense of humour, info,for making the trip very interesting also for a wonderful day out.

The last one is so great. Both buildings look so meaningful out there in the grey.
