Photographer Lewis Hine’s original caption: “Scott's Run, West Virginia. Miner's child - This boy was digging coal from mine refuse on the road side. The picture was taken December 23, 1936 on a cold day; Scott's Run was buried in snow. The child was barefoot and seemed to be used to it. He was a quarter mile from his home. 1936 - 1937.”

An old water pump. This was how we got water from the farm up on the "Adams farm" when we were enjoying time at the lake with the Cunningham Clan. There was no running water on either site but it didn't feel like "roughing it." I miss the experiences at the cabins with family. Everything felt normal and sane while we were there.
