Interesting photos of old iron ore mines around Birmingham Al.

There are close to 100 mines in and around the Birmingham area, maybe more. Red Mountain & Rufner mountain had iron and other types of mines, Several tunnels and aqueducts and a cave system with a canoe navigable river under the city itself ...or so the stories go.
