Photograph - Photograph
Mining disaster. 19th-century artwork of a tunnel collapse in a mine. The roof timbers have broken under the weight of the rock above, and these miners have been trapped and injured or killed by the timbers and rock falling on them. This was one of many dangers faced by 19th-century miners. Engraving published in Mines and Miners (L. Simonin, 1868).
