EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from 1894 takes us back in time to the heart of Cornwall's mining history. Inside the depths of Levant Mine, located in the picturesque village of St Just in Penwith, we witness a scene that reveals both the harsh realities and resourcefulness of Victorian miners. The image showcases an interior view of a dry area within the mine. Miners' clothes are seen hanging on walls and racks above heated pipes, slowly drying after a long day's work underground. The worn garments tell tales of laborious shifts spent deep beneath the surface, where dust and sweat were constant companions. Intriguingly, wooden boxes with padlocked lids catch our attention as they serve dual purposes - functioning as lockers for personal belongings while also providing weary miners with makeshift seating during their breaks. Amongst these boxes stands an old bicycle leaning against one locker, perhaps belonging to a miner who sought solace in cycling through Cornwall's rugged terrain during his precious free time. Photographer John Charles Burrow skillfully captures this intimate moment frozen in time - an insight into the lives led by those who toiled tirelessly beneath Cornwall's soil. This photograph serves as a poignant reminder of Cornish mining heritage; it speaks volumes about resilience, camaraderie, and ingenuity amidst challenging conditions. Displayed at Royal Cornwall Museum, this remarkable piece offers viewers an opportunity to connect with our past and appreciate the sacrifices made by generations before us.
