Sorry it wasn't me either. If it was, I'd gladly give you copies. I have seen all of those photos floating around however, they are part of the Horgan collection. I just haven't seen them with D&H branding. It is very interesting to note how they utilize actual coal mining photos in their sales brochure, reminding you of the labor and technology involved in delivering you their coal.

I have always seen and heard of photos from the Horgan collection, they (or he) was the office photographer for many mining companies, correct? I appreciate the offer of copies but I also wonder about the original negatives. Are they located somewhere that one many have reprints made...for a small fee?

The "it's funny" part of the info from Ebay is at one time a person could request that pamphlet and photos from the coal company for free and now I was willing to pay $75!
