Images of Cornish tin
Hard back with dust jacket, 192pp., heavy book. Profusely illustrated with colour and b/w photographs.
This book is a personal overview of an historic industry – tin mining – which has now ceased. it is a portfolio of images complied by the two authors and reflects their interests and their backgrounds. Both have many years of experience in their respective fields of metal mining and photography. Here they have been able to share their special interest in South-west England and enthusiasm for recording aspects of past industry. A deep sense of respect for what has been achieved in the past, above and below ground, by ingenuity, risk and sheer hard work.
