Took a break from 'Manney' to do more work on the 1920's kids.
There are so many amazing photos at shorpy.com to keep my pencil moving.
These kids on average wouldn't make it past 30. The mines were a very dangerous place to work. They had to use oil lamps to light their way, which usually led to explosions; what with coal being flammable n all.
Makes me appreciate my desk job. :D
