The construction of Roskear tin and copper mine, 1924

Clearing out a box of pictures from storage I found these photographs.  They catalogue the construction in 1924 of Roskear Mine at Dolcoath, Camborne, Cornwall.  My great-great-great grandfather Charles Thomas (1794-1868) was one of the first Captains of Dolcoath copper and tin mine, followed by his son Josiah Thomas (1833-1901) and his son Arthur Thomas (1867-1949).
