EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the year 1892, capturing a significant moment in the history of South Condurrow Mine in Camborne, Cornwall. Four miners are depicted standing proudly within the Cathedral, an underground chamber deep within the mine's labyrinthine tunnels. The dimly lit cave walls create an eerie yet mesmerizing atmosphere that transports us into their world. The significance of this image lies not only in its historical context but also in what was to come for this mining site. In 1897, part of South Condurrow Mine was transferred to Camborne School of Mines and later became known as King Edward VII mine. This transfer marked a turning point for the property, as it would go on to play a crucial role in shaping future generations of miners and advancing mining techniques. Photographed by John Charles Burrow, this image beautifully captures both the harsh reality and undeniable allure of Cornish mining life during that era. It serves as a poignant reminder of the tireless efforts made by these brave individuals who risked their lives daily to extract valuable minerals from beneath Cornwall's rugged terrain. As we gaze upon this remarkable photograph print from Royal Cornwall Museum, we are transported back over a century ago when South Condurrow Mine stood tall as one of Cornwall's most important industrial sites.
