Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Inland Steel Coal Mine


This is the long-abandoned coal mine above Wheelwright KY.  If you look closely, you can see the date the entrance was constructed: April, 1930.  The mine was closed around 1951, when the seam was depleted. Story is that this mine produced a superior product.
I’m standing there to give you a sense of scale.
There’s a picture of this mine in operation here.
