Rows of old coal worker’s boots in an old abandoned coal breaker in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, USA. The Room of Lost Soles is filled with these old boots and only memories of those who worked here when the coal industry was booming. The breaker closed in the early 1960s. Much of Schuylkill County’s heritage is rooted in the Anthracite mining industry.

    Very evocative image, perhaps there’s added meaning when one notices the tagging on the wall
    done by people with too much empty time in their lives!
