Drumheller Miner Photographs and Stories.
“Mining families, historians, students, teachers, industrial archaeologists and explorers – immerse yourself in the Drumheller Valley and its coal history through photographs and stories of its mining people, domestic coal mines and the land. This book’s environments portraits of old-time coal miners and their families were photographed by Lawrence Chrismas over a 30-year period and include some historical images.
Through the words of the Valley mining people, travel back to the early days when the Drumheller Valley was alive with activity: coal mines, underground miners, tipples, head frames, coal piles, steam locomotives, river ferries, soccer tournaments, baseball games, swimming in the river, dances, community dinners and miners and their families from around the world.”
