This print from the Royal Cornwall Museum takes us back to a significant moment in history - the 27th of November, 1903. Here, we witness a remarkable scene deep within the King Edward VII Mine, located in South Condurrow, Camborne, Cornwall. The photographer behind this striking image is none other than John Charles Burrow. In this underground labyrinth of darkness and industry, we see a group of young students diligently working alongside experienced miners. Their faces are etched with determination as they navigate through the unknown depths of this formidable mine. Each individual plays their part in extracting precious minerals from the heart of Cornwall's rich earth. The King Edward VII Mine holds great historical significance for its contribution to the mining industry that once thrived in this region. This photograph serves as a testament to both the arduous labor endured by these brave souls and their unwavering commitment to their craft. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, it reminds us of an era when mining was not only an occupation but also an integral part of Cornish identity. It pays homage to those who dedicated themselves to harnessing nature's treasures beneath our feet. Let us cherish this poignant reminder of our past and honor those whose resilience shaped our present-day heritage.
