Two young miners at croust time at an unidentified mine in Cornwall. Late 1800s
This photograph shows two young miners having a break ( croust is a traditional Cornish word for a break for food). One man has a sledge hammer the other a mining type pick. The man on the left is lighting his pipe with a candle, while the the other wears candles on a string around his neck and sits on a water barrel. He drinks water out of a metal or ceramic bottle. His pasty, in a white linen bag, is balanced on his knee. The title of the photograph is incorrectly written as " Cornish Mineing Series, Grouse Time". Photographer: Unknown
