In-Depth : Loree Colliery Outbuildings
March 7, 2015
Going through some images on my computer, these turned up. They are scans of 35 photos, of the remains of the Loree Colliery of the D&H Coal Company.
The Colliery was named after a President of the D&H Railroad. The main breaker building was demolished years before. The only thing left were these Outbuildings, as the are called.
These were located off of Nesbitt Street in Larksville. On going to St. John's Church Bazaar and the Larksville VFD Bazaar in the summer of 2014, not of the structure by the road were sitll there. Not sure if the other ones further back in the coal dumps are still there.
These images were from the early 1990's, about 1991. I was still using a Pentax K-1000 then.

This is a substation and perhaps a powerhouse.
