Coal Mining Pictures

Here you will find images related to the coal mining industry with a primary emphasis on the anthracite area of Pennsylvania. Pictures are grouped by location and will display coal breakers, miners and planes from the height of the coal industry.

We strive to provide accurate information on each picture, however there are some where information is difficult to find and verify. A majority of these images were produced from a collection of glass negatives taken during the late 1800's. The remaining images are re-produced from old photos and postcards.

We have over 2,000 glass negatives we are scanning, so check back often for new pictures.
