New Cooks Kitchen, Illogan, Cornwall. Early 1900s
Chappel's (engine) shaft at the 406 level. This shows a typical Cornish kibble, with curved sides to prevent snagging, which has been hoisted from below by an air winch and its contents dumped into a tram. The pipe running from top left to centre bottom follows the dip or underlie of the lode and took compressed air to the rock drill working at a deeper level shown in the photograph at the bottom of Engine Shaft. Photographer: John Charles Burrow (1852-1914)
