Tin Mining in Cornwall 1900 to 1950


Subtitled "Decline, Fall and Resurrection", this important and fascinating history tells of the fortunes of the Cornish mining industry during the first half of the 20th century and the reasons for its 'decline, fall and resurrection', some unique to the industry, some not.

Also covered are several key industries in the industry during the period, and the industry's successes and failures are examined both generally, and through three major players, East Pool, Geevor and South Crofty.

A 'must have' for anyone interested in the history of the Cornish (and British) metal mining industry.

325 pages. A reasonable number of B&W photographs, plus maps, mine plans etc. Softback.
