Great pictures. I've got a few of those in my archives. The one with the guy setting in the wheel barrow I think was staged. There are several different versions/poses of that one floating around.

a couple of those look like Lewis Hine pictures.

(fun fact. Hine was born not far from where I grew up)

You are correct Welder Dave. There are a couple of Hine pictures above.

Here is another...

A young leader and a driver, Shaft #6, Pennsylvania Coal Company mine at Pittston. Pasquale Salvo and Sandy Castina. January 1911. Photograph by Lewis Wickes Hine.

Could be, that was taken by photographer Earl Palmer. He traveled around Appalachia in the early to mid 1900's documenting everything from coal miners to school kids & farm life.
