Old photograph of a large block of coal

PostBy: garry52w On: Fri Dec 25, 2009 2:03 am

I have seen but can not now find a photo of a large piece of coal. I think that it was a one ton piece on a coal car with 2008 written on the lump a number of times. It seems that it was bound for a worlds fair for exhibition. I would like to find the picture and more information about it. The location of the coal was western Maryland I believe.

Thank you for any help you may give.

I am looking for a specific photo but would be interested to see if the photo that you have is the same one that I have seen. I am looking for this piece because it is from my local area. If you could post to me the picture that you have, that would be great. I don't know how the private post works but that would be great . Thank you

There is a HUGE one at Kneobels. I think its over 10 ton. Right out side the Anthracite Museum.

I don't have a photo, I do know where the 13 ton piece is, and next time I am there, I'll take a picture !

I have uploaded a pic of the particular piece of coal that I am seeking - not the piece itself but another photo and especially information about this particular piece.
