    Yeah reminds me NOW. Rather think of BeeGees song which was made up about NY mining disaster but makes one think of poor buggers stuck underground with only hope to keep going.

    Kind of staged looking press photo, numbered barrels indicate at least 265 such rigs, and even the brooms are carried alike.
    So why is the trash to the right of mid frame still there?

    The trash on the street is classic "not my job", of course it is staged press photo,I wonder if the trash was ever mentioned in letters to the editor?
