EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from 1893 showcases the industrious spirit of East Pool Mine in Illogan, Cornwall. The image captures a crucial moment during under-hand stoping at the 170 level, offering a glimpse into the daily life of miners during the Victorian era. In this scene, three men form a small gang known as a "pare" diligently working together to extract valuable minerals from deep within the earth. On the left side of the photograph, we witness a miner skillfully wielding his pickaxe with determination and expertise. His focused expression reveals both his physical strength and mental resilience required for such demanding work. To his right, two other members of the pare are engaged in boring holes for blasting purposes. One man turns the drill while two others vigorously strike hammers against it. The photographer behind this remarkable snapshot is John Charles Burrow, who expertly captures not only their labor but also their camaraderie and teamwork amidst challenging conditions underground. This historic image serves as an invaluable testament to Cornwall's rich mining heritage. As we gaze upon this print today at Royal Cornwall Museum, we are transported back in time to an era when pickaxes were essential tools for extracting precious resources from beneath our feet. It reminds us of those brave souls who dedicated their lives to shaping our region's history through hard work and perseverance – all without mentioning any commercial use or specific company involved in these operations.
