EDITORS COMMENTS
A Glimpse into Levant Mine's Rich History: 'Count House Gathering' (circa early 1900s) This photograph, preserved by the Royal Cornwall Museum, offers a rare glimpse into the lives of miners at Levant Mine in St Just in Penwith, Cornwall. The image captures fourteen men gathered outside the Count House, including Major Dick White - likely seated on the right and holding his walking cane. The group's attire is a testament to their fashionable sense during this era. All but one individual don stylish hats or caps, while their clothing reflects the modernity of early 20th-century menswear. One man stands out from the rest by peering through the window on the far right - perhaps lost in thought or keeping watch. The Levant Mine, once a thriving hub for tin mining and production, played a significant role in Cornwall's industrial heritage. This photograph serves as a poignant reminder of those who worked tirelessly beneath its depths. The men depicted here were not only skilled laborers but also members of the local community - fathers, sons, brothers, and friends. This snapshot from history invites us to step into their world, where hard work and camaraderie defined daily life in Cornwall's mining towns during a bygone era.
