    And the women of today find things to complain about, they don't know how lucky they are.
    I suppose when they go home and do the washing in a tub with a scrubbing/washboard, their hands will be nice and clean again when they cook the dinner. I am glad we treat them better now.

    One of those seven ladies could be your mother, grandmother or great grandmother. They were not afraid to work...

    In sorting coal they were keenly looking for non coal minerals like regular rocks secondly they could have been looking for lower grades of coal.
    Had the folks of my family lived in coal bearing regions one of those ladies could have been my mother she would have been in just about the correct age bracket.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    My dad used to do that when he was a kid. Told us about how the pins would often fly up and hit them as they stood there watching, waiting.

    I saw these people when I was a kid in Washington State in my home town doing this with hand held sprayers, this must of caused bad backs after the streets were finished, but. back breaking work was the norm , even in the fifties and sixties!
