Snap­shot of the past

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

A photo post­card show­ing a group of four men bag­ging coal at the Mor­well Coal Mine c.1918.

Min­ing has come a long way since this pho­to­graph to open cut min­ing.

Note the wooden wheel bar­rows and how the men all look clean in white shirts and vests despite the work be­ing un­der­taken.

Pho­to­graph and in­for­ma­tion courtesy of the War­ragul and District Historical So­ci­ety.

If you have any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion about this pho­to­graph, please con­tact The Gazette on 5623 5666 or ed­i­to­[email protected] gul­gazette.com.au.
