Miners at Arminius Mines




This image is of miners at the Arminus Mines posing together. A clergyman is present in the middle and it is evident how many children grew up around and worked in the mines. Frequently, the miners weren’t steady long-term employees. They worked for a season or two and then found work elsewhere. Some workers, however, depended on the mines for their livelihoods and lived on the property, worked there for many years, and raised their families at the mines.
