THE COAL TOWN KIDS

    Newer Older

    This is one of the "little" coal scoops used in the strip mine near JEDDO, Pa. The larger buckets are nearly three time bigger than this one !

    At one time Jeddo [Tokyo] Coal was famous all over the East Coast USA, and all the way to Japan. In fact, the close-by mining towns of JAPAN-JEDO, and the smaller JEDDO BOROUGH, were named in honor of their main trading partner --- the city and sea port of Tokyo, Japan !

      The rusted metal has created such beautiful variations of color, nice shot.

      Now that you mention it. "Rust Color" is certainly MORE than just one color. Thanks.
