I had some questions about the Dorrance Colliery, does anyone know where there is a little bit of history on the place in the net...all I can seem to find are pictures. And whats that long wall with the pipe holes in it just below the fan complex along that dirt road?

The link gave me a "Temporary file open error. Display failed." I'll have to check it again later. I was amazed to see that the place was pretty much part of the cemetery, thats crazy.

Don't know how to answer your questions Daimon, but I love your perspective in photography.
Seriously dude... get a job!

Have you ever seen William Frassanito's book on Gettysburg Photography?
It's called "A Journey In Time" if you ever want to check it out.
