That must have been one of the most awful work ever ! I visited a coal mine here in Marcinelle Belgium where 262 out of 274 minors died in 1956 (mostly Italians) which has become a memorial now. It was so sad, that I didn't take a lot of pictures and they were bad.
A fascinating post with great photos! My cousin (12 years my senior) was a miner in a nickel company in Ontario, Canada and he said it was very strenuous work.
I want that sign in my bathroom. I can imagine the reaction of guests in my home!!
What a humbling experience, seeing these photos. These men do what I couldn't imagine doing.
Amazing set of images, you prepared a great article here about the Miners!Congratulations!Léia
