The Coal Mines of West Virginia
We received another great postcard thanks to Postcrossing! This card comes from Terri B in West Virginia. This postcard features Exhibition Coal Mine in Beckley, WV. Exhibition Coal Mine is a museum-like place honoring the life of coal miners. She states that her husband is an electrical foreman in the mines, and that the museums shows what mining used to be like, though things have been updated in today's mines.
This is a really great card that reminds us of people we seldom remember in our day to day lives, despite the fact that they are a big part of what keeps our lives going.
