Here's another cool pic I found on Shorpy, it's from Gary, West Virginia, Sept. 1908. It shows a "new" machine used in the mines to dig the coal. It took 3 people to operate and replaced 50 people doing it the old way. Not my picture, so I can only give you the link.
It's called "Watch Your Fingers".
