EDITORS COMMENTS
The sepia-toned photograph titled ""Croust time", East Pool mine" captures a poignant moment in the lives of Cornish miners during the Victorian era. Taken from the book "Mongst mines and miners, or Underground Scenes by Flash-Light" this image showcases the laborers taking a well-deserved break for lunch. In this scene, we see a group of male workers gathered around scaffolding, their tired bodies finding solace in temporary respite. The industrious atmosphere is palpable as they sit on rails and wooden planks, enjoying their midday meal amidst an industrial backdrop. The term "croust time" refers to the Cornish tradition of taking a break to eat lunch during long hours of arduous work. This cultural practice allowed these hardworking individuals to refuel and recharge before returning to their demanding tasks underground. The photograph's sepia tones lend it an air of nostalgia, transporting us back to a bygone era where manual labor was at its peak. It serves as a testament to the resilience and fortitude displayed by these workers who dedicated themselves tirelessly to Cornwall's mining industry. This remarkable image not only offers insight into historical working conditions but also highlights the importance of rest and camaraderie among laborers. It stands as a reminder that even in times of intense physical exertion, moments like "croust time" provided much-needed relief and unity within this close-knit community.
