Does anybody have or know if there is and existing pictures of the Westmoreland coal breaker or Homestead breaker? There both located in West Wyoming Pa. The homestead breaker was about a 1/4 mile downstream and up the mountain a little from the Westmoreland breaker, that breaker was wiped off the maps by the 1880's I dont know what happened to it, im assuming it burned down likt most of them did. The westmoreland breaker dissappeard in the 1930"s? im not sure what happened to that either. Ive only seen about 2 pictures ever of this colliery and that was of the entrance, and a very poor ariel image, if anybody could help me with this i would very greatly appreciate it.

I have one of the mine entrance with a line of cars coming out, two of the breaker from the 1920's-30's, and one of the breaker from the culm bank around 1919-20. You sure you have those? I got three of them from Carl awhile back.
