EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the early 1900s, capturing a group of miners deep within the depths of East Pool Mine in Illogan, Cornwall. The image showcases an intimate moment shared by these brave individuals who dedicated their lives to extracting precious minerals from the earth. In this particular frame, we see a diverse group of miners standing proudly on the 70 level. Among them is none other than John Charles Burrow himself, the talented photographer behind this remarkable snapshot. Standing beside him are his wife and son, both wearing sturdy work attire that blends seamlessly with their surroundings. The miners' worn felt hats sit atop heads covered in coal dust, while flickering candles illuminate their determined faces. A large barrel rests nearby - perhaps containing tools or provisions for their arduous day ahead. It's evident that camaraderie runs deep among this tight-knit community as they pose together for this timeless portrait. As we gaze upon this photograph from over a century ago, it serves as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by those who toiled tirelessly beneath our feet. Their unwavering dedication and resilience helped shape Cornwall's mining heritage into what it is today. Displayed at Royal Cornwall Museum, this image transports us back in time to witness firsthand the hardships faced by these unsung heroes of industry – forever etching their legacy into history's pages.
