West Virginia Coal Mine Workers

Photo Details

Three coal miners near Welch, West VA, waiting for the company bus to take them home. They are joking around and laughing, so it must have been a good day at the mine.

There are two buses - "company" can be seen on the bus on the left, the bus on the right has "for employees only" on the back and "The Kopps" (partial name of the company?) on the side.
