By Leo L. Ward and Mark T. Major

The photographs in this book bring to life a bygone era, when Coal was King, and almost everyone who lived between Pottsville, Hazelton, Wilkes-Barre, and Scranton was affected by the daily activity of coal mining. The outstanding images in this visual history have been mined by Leo Ward and Mark Major from the rich seam of the Historical Society of Schuylkill County. Images in this book, many of them are rare and previously unpublished, take us back to the late 1800s and early 1900s.
