COAL CHUTE

_IGP2978

Yesterday, I took my Wife up to her old home in Minersville, PA to meet with some of her long time girl friends that she has known since High School.  They were going to have some lunch together at the old Washington House.  So, after I dropped her off, I had a few hours to spend just “snooping around” the area with my Pentax.

Located just outside Minersville on the road to Dunncock is this left over Coal Chute that was once used to load Coal into waiting trucks to be taken where-ever needed when Coal Was King in this area.  Located just behind the shed is a rusty old conveyor that was used to move the coal from one place to another.  You can barely see it because of all the over-growth.  I was not going to climb up there just to get a shot of it.  I’m surprised that the old thing is still standing.  It’s just wasting away into the past.

Like I had stated before, the Coal Region Area is just full of History.  The only problem is knowing where to find what remains.  I’m slowly doing this.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
