Fun fact about the early days of coal mining.


Recommended Posts

Back in the early days of coal mining, they would try to put as many services as possible directly inside the mine; essentially building whole towns under ground so the workers would never have to come up to the surface.


The problem with that was it was hard to have fresh food down there; there wasn't enough space for crops or livestock.


So that's why they started putting canneries in coal mines.
