Hey, this great video want to make greater go search non-copyright music and add to this video and make way, ore amazing!
I lived in Osage in the late 70s early 80s and heard stories of these old mining camps and some of the homes still stand today.
Thin cotton dresses with tights and homemade knit caps - outside picking coal to warm the house so they can then cook food from scratch to feel hungry children biscuits with pork lard topping, and wash clothes and diapers by hand. And people think today they are poor with cable TV, buses, free cellphones, etc.
My thanks to you
Touching beautiful pictures. reminds me of the stories my grandad told me. he was from bogaloosa la and left home to ride the rails after his father died. He said that during the depression era if you were riding the rails and staying in tent cities everyone just put together whatever they had to make due and make a meal. he said one on one there wasn't much racism. he worked for the wpa. he supported his mom and sisters.
MAY FATHER GOD ALMIGHTY BLESS THE SOULS OF THOSE. HARD WORKING MEN AND CHILDREN ,,,,THANK YOU FOR POSTING THESE VIDS ,,,
