Mine No.2, Kentucky Block Cannel Coal Company


Mules pull coal from a deep mine at Cannel City in Morgan County. About 80-85 years ago, Cannel City was world famous for its cannel coal, hence the name of the town. A large mining camp grew up around the mines and was served by the Ohio & Kentucky Railroad. The miners in this photo are unidentified. (Courtesy of Dave Whisman, Prestonsburg, Kentucky)
