EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the early 1930s, specifically the 14th of January in 1935. It showcases a remarkable scene deep within the heart of North Wales' Berwyn Mountain range - an industrious mining operation drilling through colossal mountains of slate. Half a mile beneath the surface, workers can be seen meticulously preparing for the imminent explosion that will shake these ancient rocks to their core. The scale of this endeavor is awe-inspiring; enormous slabs, some weighing up to two tons, are brought down with each blast. The determination and skill exhibited by these miners is palpable as they navigate this treacherous environment day after day. Their unwavering commitment to their job is evident in every swing of their drills and every bead of sweat on their brows. This image serves as a testament to both human resilience and industrial progress during this era. It reminds us of the immense challenges faced by those who worked tirelessly underground, extracting valuable resources from Mother Earth's depths. As we gaze upon this photograph captured by Memory Lane Prints' talented staff, we are transported back in time - witnessing firsthand the grit and determination required for such a demanding occupation in one of Wales' most iconic industries: slate quarrying.
