Republic Steel Workers

Here is another of the old photos I found…

This is a gathering of men who worked for the Republic Steel Mine on Road Creek.  They are at the fish ponds on Elkhorn Creek.  Dad is easy to find, he is in the dark shirt, fourth from the right in the row of men standing.  Uncle Teet is in there too.  He is also standing, fourth from the left. 
I can recognize a coupe of the other men.  I’m pretty sure that is Vinton Thacker ( Roger, Butch and Tina’s dad ) standing on the left end.  Lee Robinson is kneeling in the front, right above the word ‘Workers’.
We need to get Dad to identify the rest of them for us.

More Old Photos

While killing time at the Pikeville Public Library recently I came across a big collection of old photos on one of the computers there.  I copied several of them to share here.  I don’t think this first one needs any introduction…

I’ll try to post more of them in a day or two.
