Those are great photos of the vintage workers, and your collage does a good job of tying them together and putting them in a context.

That is quite a vintage keepsake, the time sheet. A great post for SS. I found it very interesting. Didn't know about the women, either.

Great photos and very interesting post. I had no idea women worked at the mines too. The job of crusher and bagger does not sound easy! Any sort of mine work seems like a huge sacrifice, risking life and limb to support a family. Thanks for sharing these great photos.

Asbestos mining sounds a hazardous business. The machine shop is full of hazards too. Great photos.

Great post, thanks Anna. You did really well getting family photographs of the workplace - these tend to be so rare, I suppose in those early years, photographs were things that were taken at good times, on high days and holidays, times to remember - and few wanted reminding of their daily toil.

Stunning pictures

Very nicely done card.

And the first photo is quite fascinating. I guess I never really knew asbestos was mined. It was just something that was "there" all the time. I never thought about where it came from. --tattered and lost

to think that later on, it was discovered that asbestos was harmful... pity for all of those workers thus exposed.
