I have spent the winter scanning my large (over 800) collection of 35mm slide and negative images of mines in Devon and Cornwall.

The vast majority of slides are now on line on my website as are quite a few of the negatives with the remainder due to appear during the rest of the year.

Views include underground at Geevor taken on two of the deep mine tours which used the sub- incline shaft.

Images can be accessed at:

Hi
If you have anything of Polberro underground it would be appreciated.

Very nice. Sad to see Tolgus in the state that it is in today. IP: 169.57.0.221
