Today it looks very special an interesting to us, but what work conditions in these mines ! the poor people. BTW I didn't know that there were such an important mine in Cornwall. Blogging makes intelligent !

I like both versions of this photo. The mining structure is fascinating and you captured it very well.

I'm fascinated and love the way you captured the mine in B&W. I cannot imagine the process. You continue to educate. I'm in awe.

How interesting, I enjoyed these photos very much. Funny, but in a related post, in a round-a-bout way to tin mining, I have pre-posted something which will appear on Wednesday that you might want to take a look at ;)

When work is done, call it a museum! It is fascinating to see how the work was done back then.

The photo in monochrome works better for me. I think industrial buildings look better in black and white.

Wow, I had a lot of catching up to do. Love the b&w retro one here and love the hills, sheep, water, and flower ones above.
