South Crofty Mine, Camborne, Cornwall. 28th February 1910 Featured May Print

South Crofty Mine, Camborne, Cornwall. 28th February 1910

One of John Charles Burrow's last underground photographs taken at the 170 fathoms level in Palmers section. It shows miners using a Stephens 3 1/4 inch drill fitted with a primitive sprayer. The water is obtained from the bucket. The drillers mate holds a hammer ready to strike the drill if it jams in the hole, a common fault with early machines with their inadequate rotating mechanism. Dry drilling by machine proved immensely damaging miners health, but spraying was not introduced into Cornwall, noted for its antiquated practices, until the early 1900s

Church seen from street above. Glass lantern slide from a lecture, entitled Some Historic Cornish Beauty Spots, given by Cornishman and amateur photographer, Major Arthur William Gill, in around 1925. He was well known in Cornwall and elsewhere during the 1920s and 1930s for his presentations of stills and cine film to many groups including The Royal Institution of Cornwall, Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society and the London Cornish Society. The quarter plate slides which he took prolifically with his ordinary camera are, in many cases, colour. These were painted by his own hand to great effect
