Tramming with a pit pony at the 278 fathoms main tramming level. Pit ponies were rarely used in Cornwall and until they were introduced at East Pool Mine during the First World War they were unique to Levant. A steam locomotive was tried there for a few months in 1892 but abandoned in favour of ponies. They proved so successful that seven were subsequently employed. Photographer: John Charles Burrow
