Scenes on the North Branch of the Susquehanna, 1874. Creator: James H. Richardson

Scenes on the North Branch of the Susquehanna, 1874. ...the furnace on Hunlocks Creek, Nanticoke ferry, Danville, the hemlock-gatherers,
the stone-quarry, etc'. Tree-felling, logging, quarrying and mining along the North Branch of the Susquehanna River, Pennsylvania, USA. ...the prevailing industry is mining, all the mountains here containing iron-ore. There is some considerable difficulty in floating down logs to the main stream of the Susquehanna below Clearfield, and most of the timber cut is used for the purpose of smelting or for forges, where the charcoal hammered iron is made...we come to a rough, irregular stone structure, black as ink, and surrounded by rudely-arranged scaffolding of a peculiar form. This is a coal-mine, or rather all that can be seen externally of it. Of iron-furnaces there are many, and of rolling-mills more than a few'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]

Coal mining accident, Tynewydd Colliery, South Wales, April 1877 (c1885). Volunteers digging through an obstruction to rescue colleagues trapped in flooded workings in the Tynewydd Colliery in the Rhondda Valley. They are working by the light of Davy safety lamps. 9 trapped miners were saved, 5 of them after being underground for 9 days, in a difficult and dangerous rescue operation. The drama enthralled the nation, and 25 of the rescuers were awarded the Albert Medal for their efforts, the first time it had been awarded for a rescue operation on land. From Heroes of Britain by Edwin Hodder. (London c1885)
