Not mining but well worth a watch.
Another dying trade that one brought pleasure to many.
What a character. Popcorn Sutton and JB Rader's Moonshine plant. On second thought, Perhaps related to post mine exploring activities ? Innocent

I'd like to think I'm somewhat sprightlier looking, but my wife see's a resemblance. Hahaha!


Wonderful video.

Agreed, you are a little sprightlier but it was the gritting of the teeth while shaking the jar, the little 'pointing' action followed by the grin Wink

Apparently ol’ popcorn Had a fire at his place and when the fire service came to see to it they found 650 gallons of hooch.
He was sentenced to serve 18 months but took his own life the day before they came for him.
If you search about there’s quite a bit to read about this guy.

I watched that right through, great link, going to send it to my partner who lives in the wilds,(well Chacewater). She plays the banjo and that whole hillbilly thing is something she loves! A lot of the underground types I know all have beards and wild hair so very appropriate. TonyBig Grin

Whilst researching our family history, my mother discovered that one of my 19th century West Riding ancestors was prosecuted for making and selling illicit spirits to the local miners! Part of me thinks maybe I ought to resurrect the family tradition, but on the other hand my taste in whisky is far too refined (and expensive) for poteen.

Got me thinking of the Steve Earle song "Copperhead Road" too...

Not drinking the profits is good economics. Smile
