Greetings Cape Breton! I grew up in a coal mining community in Washington state called Roslyn WA. I still remember listening to the sound of the coal cars making their way up the # 9 rock dump early in the morning, I Hope you and yours are doing well.

i was fortunate enough to go through the miners museum with my grandad and hear from him all he had to say. that man was the hardest working man i ever knew. and proud till the day he died.
My grandfather was a glace bay minor...God bless Francie Gillis:)
Your Great Grandpa is a true Hero and Davis Day is the finest civic holiday in Canada.
I grew up on Warren Ave. in New Waterford and if I'm not mistaken just a block away from your gramdpa who lived on Pellet Ave.?
Not sure, It was a long time ago.
Forever Rest In Peace to your Great Grandpa

Davis Day tomorrow in CB...Even tho I am away now,I will say a prayer for him tomorrow.A proud NewWaterford boy here.
My Grandfather George Rehberg worked in the # 2 and # 26. There's a road named after our Family in L'Ardoise.... Martell / Rehberg Rd. When my children head off to school, I plan on moving down. For some reason, nowhere else in this world seems like " HOME ".
I love this video and I love the music!
Most of the men in my dad's family worked in the mines at one time or another, especially Princess Colliery on Pitt Street in Sydney Mines.
Thanks for this great video and all the others you have made, Buddy!
