19th-century Coal Mining
Photograph - Photograph
19th-century coal mining. Historical artwork of coal miners going down a mineshaft. They are standing on the edge of a barrel that is being lowered on a chain to the bottom of the mineshaft. The miners, who are carrying lamps, are using their hands to keep the barrel away from the sides of the shaft (lined with bricks). They are passing a side shaft (labelled with a depth of 200 metres) where a miner is holding a tool to dislodge the barrel if it gets stuck. The shield above the miners' heads protects them from falling stones. Artwork, after an engraving by Bonhomme, published in Mines and Miners (L. Simonin, 1868).
