Pulaski Collieries

Here's a photo of the Pulaski Collieries at Eckman, courtesy of Norfolk Southern. The photo gives a circa date of 1930's but I know the picture was taken much earlier.  I would guess this photo was taken between 1910 and 1920.  Most all of the coke ovens in McDowell were shut down by 1920 and the coal was coked at the steel mills.
