Child Miners - Moving Coal Up a Steep Slope

Child Miners-Moving Coal Up a Steep Slope

Not only did child miners endure the back-breaking work of extracting coal, breathing bad air and working in the dark, they had to move the coal from the mine to the surface. 

This illustration, from the UK National Archives, depicts children moving coal from the mine face up a steep slope.  The work is so difficult it takes three youngsters to move the coal truck.
