Street Life in London in the 19th century - Pictures from the streets in London of the  1876-1877
Street Life in London, published in 1876-7, consists of a series of articles by the radical journalist Adolphe Smith and the photographer John Thomson. The pieces are short but full of detail, based on interviews with a range of men and women who eked out a precarious and marginal existence working on the streets of London, including flower-sellers, chimney-sweeps, shoe-blacks, chair-caners, musicians, dustmen and locksmiths. The subject matter of Street Life was not new -- the second half of the 19th century saw an increasing interest in urban poverty and social conditions -- but the unique selling point of Street Life was a series of photographs 'taken from life' by Thomson. The authors felt at the time that the images lent authenticity to the text, and their book is now regarded as a key work in the history of documentary photography.

35 Rare Vintage Photographs of Ellis Island Immigration in the Early 20th Century
After the depression of the 1890s, immigration jumped from a low of 3.5 million in that decade to a high of 9 million in the first decade of the new century. Immigrants from Northern and Western Europe continued coming as they had for three centuries, but in decreasing numbers. After the 1880s, immigrants increasingly came from Eastern and Southern European countries, as well as Canada and Latin America. By 1910, Eastern and Southern Europeans made up 70 percent of the immigrants entering the country. After 1914, immigration dropped off because of the war, and later because of immigration restrictions imposed in the 1920s. The reasons these new immigrants made the journey to America differed little from those of their predecessors. Escaping religious, racial, and political persecution, or seeking relief from a lack of economic opportunity or famine still pushed many immigrants out of their homelands. Many were pulled here by contract labor agreements offered by recruiting agents, known as padrones to Italian and Greek laborers. Hungarians, Poles, Slovaks, Bohemians, and Italians flocked to the coal mines or steel mills, Greeks preferred the textile mills, Russian and Polish Jews worked the needle trades or pushcart markets of New York. Railroad companies advertised the availability of free or cheap farmland overseas in pamphlets distributed in many languages, bringing a handful of agricultural workers to western farmlands. But the vast majority of immigrants crowded into the growing cities, searching for their chance to make a better life for themselves. Immigrants entering the United States who could not afford first or second-class passage came through the processing center at Ellis Island, New York. Built in 1892, the center handled some 12 million European immigrants, herding thousands of them a day through the barn-like structure during the peak years for screening. Government inspectors asked a list of twenty-nine probing questions, such as: Have you money, relatives or a job in the United States? Are you a polygamist? An anarchist? Next, the doctors and nurses poked and prodded them, looking for signs of disease or debilitating handicaps. Usually immigrants were only detained 3 or 4 hours, and then free to leave. If they did not receive stamps of approval, and many did not because they were deemed criminals, strikebreakers, anarchists or carriers of disease, they were sent back to their place of origin at the expense of the shipping line. For the newcomers arriving without family, some solace could be found in the ethnic neighborhoods populated by their fellow countrymen. Here they could converse in their native tongue, practice their religion, and take part in cultural celebrations that helped ease the loneliness. Often, though, life for all was not easy. Most industries offered hazardous conditions and very low wages--lowered further after the padrone took out his share. Urban housing was overcrowded and unsanitary. Many found it very difficult to accept. An old Italian saying summed up the disillusionment felt by many: "I came to America because I heard the streets were paved with gold. When I got here, found out three things: First, the streets weren't paved with gold; second, they weren't paved at all: and third, I was expected to pave them." In spite of the difficulties, few gave up and returned home.

Colourized 100+ Year Old Photos Of American Child Labour
Lewis Wickes Hine was an American sociologist and photographer, whose work was instrumental in changing child labour laws in the United States.

Centralia Burning Ghost Town - Pennsylvania USA
Centralia, Pennsylvania was nearly entirely evacuated following a coal mine fire, burning beneath the town since 1962. Centralia’s fire started in 1962, when residents turned an old strip mine into a dump, and setting the rubbish alight. The fire spread through an unsealed opening to the underground coal mines, igniting a seam of coal, and the fire has been burning to this day. In 1992, Pennsylvania condemned the town and claimed it under eminent domain in an attempt for force the remaining residents out. Some sued, and were allowed to stay. A section of State Route 61 was abandoned after it began to buckle and crumble from the underground fire. The fire stretches 12km, and burns underneath an area of 15 square kilometres, 300 feet below ground, authorities say the fire could burn for another 250 years. The town now mostly attracts tourists who visit an abandoned highway, where many profanities and obscene pictures are spray painted onto it, over time the highway has earned the nickname Graffiti Highway. Centralia is rumored to have inspired Silent Hill.

The Children Who Built Victorian Britain Part 1
The catalyst to Britain's Industrial Revolution was the slave labour of orphans and destitute children. In this shocking and moving account of their exploitation and eventual emancipation, Professor Jane Humphries uses the actual words of these child workers (recorded in diaries, interviews and letters) to let them tell their own story. She also uses groundbreaking animation to bring to life a world where 12-year-olds went to war at Trafalgar and six-year-olds worked the fields as human scarecrows. Jane Humphries: Jane Humphries is a fellow of All Soul Souls College and a Professor of Economic History at Oxford University and the author of "Childhood and Child Labour in the British Industrial Revolution". In "The Children Who Built Victorian England" she uses the biographies, letters, diaries and documents of hundreds of working children to tell the story of the Industrial Revolution from their perspective. By accessing their testimonies she allows them to speak up for themselves and what they have to say may surprise you. These children weren't mindless drones or soul-less victims; they were feisty, clever, gutsy and determined people who collectively made sure that future generations did not suffer the same fate they did. The programme also sees Jane visiting Jane visits the places where the children worked as she tries to get a picture of how widespread the practice of child labour was. She also looks at the kind of jobs that, 200 years ago, were seen as appropriate for children. More tellingly she also reveals the social conditions which created a population boom amongst the poor - one which was exploited by the early industrialists. For example most of the new factories were built in sparsely populated areas and so their workforce was provided through the trafficking of orphans from the cities. These destitute children aged eight and sometimes younger, who were handed over by the Parish authorities and signed up to work for free until they reached adulthood. Without this available slave labour many businesses would never have got off the ground.

21 ABANDONED Places Around The World
Although humans take up a lot of the land on earth nowadays, it seems there’s also many places that have been left behind. Here’s some of the most interesting towns that sit empty yet full of history. Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 9. Witley Court, United Kingdom This may not be a town, but this old mansion is definitely big enough to house one. Witley Court is located in Worcestershire, England and was a former manor house. The building site experienced significant expansion during the 19th century as well as a reconstruction, which would make it one of the great pleasure palaces in England at the time. It was designed under the Italianate style, though now it sits in ruins. A fire in 1937 would lead to the ultimate abandonment of the manor as it greatly damaged the structure. 8. Te Wairoa, New Zealand This now empty town but frequented tourist attraction is located on the shore of New Zealand’s North Island. Both the Maori and Europeans called Te Wairoa home after it was founded in 1848. Te Wairoa also gest referred to as “the Buried Village” after the eruption of Mount Tarawera in 1886. Tourists can visit this deserted village as it has been open to the public as a historic display. 7. Grand Bassam, Ivory Coast Although over 84,000 people still reside in parts of Grand Bassam, large portions of the town have been left abandoned and empty. Many still come to this town in the southeast region of the Ivory Coast to visit the beach resorts. It once was an important sea port until the mid 20th century. Many of the old colonial buildings that were abandoned have since been restored, however. Grand Bassam gets portioned off into two halves, with one being Ancien Bassam where you’ll find all the old parts of the French settlement. 6. Centralia, Pennsylvania Many consider Centralia one of the eeriest places to visit in the United States. Located in the state of Pennsylvania, Centralia counts as a near-ghost town as it still has a population of 10 inhabitant as reported in 2010. In this photo, you can see how toxic gas and smoke rise out of the cracks in the ground, a big reason why not a lot of people live here. This can be attributed to the mine fire that has left the borough burning since 1962 , the cause of the fire being something no one can agree on, though it has been suggested it was due to the cleanup of the landfill. 5. Humberstone and Santa Laura, Chile Humberstone and Santa Laura were saltpeter refineries which have seen been declared UNESCO World Heritage sites since 2005. These refineries are located in the Tarapacá Region of Chile in the Atacama Desert. They were both founded in 1872 with the Guillermo Wendell Nitrate Extraction Company having founded Santa Laura while Humberstone was founded by James Thomas Humberstone. And in 1960, they would both be abandoned. A decade later they would become ghost town, sooning opening up to the public as a tourist attraction and national monuments. 4. Ross Island, South Andaman District Not to be confused with Ross Island in the Antarctic, this Ross Island can be found in the Indian Ocean. It is the sight of penal settlements that were established in the mid 1800s. Before that in the late 1700s, a hospital and sanatorium were both established on the island. Located in the Bay of Bengal, the penal colonies here have since succumbed to nature, with the trees growing through the buildings. 3. Hashima Island, Japan About 9 miles or 15 kilometers away from Nagasaki, Japan sits the abandoned Hashima Island. The structures on the island consists mostly of concrete buildings that no one at all resides in. Located in the southern region of Japan, the town was founded on the island in 1887 as a mine during Japan’s industrialization period. By the 1970s to 1980s, the depletion of the mining reserves lead to the decline of the population. 2. Kilamba New City The large housing department known as Kilamba New City can be found 18 miles or 30 kilometers away from Angola’s capital city of Luanda. This mostly empty housing development holds 750 apartment blocks, 17 schools, and over 100 commercial properties. Most of the construction was completed in 2012 and sits mostly unoccupied. Over 200,000 people could have lived in the new city, which cost $3.5 billion to make. Of the 2,800 apartments, only 220 were sold. More than 200 stores were built so as to helped the economy. 1...

Why This Town Has Been On Fire For 50 Years
This week Reactions is shining light on why a small town in PA, Centralia, has been on fire for over 50 years. It's because of science. Well, chemistry, technically. In 1962, an underground fire started in the coal-mining town of Centralia, Pennsylvania. Fifty-three years later, that fire still burns. In this week’s episode of Reactions, we explain the history and science behind the Centralia mine fire. Does anyone still live there? How could the fire keep burning for so long, and why hasn’t it been extinguished? From a chemical standpoint, what is fire, anyway?

The images offer an insight into the lives of enslaved children in the United States - some of whom were forced to toil in fields when they were just toddlers.The collection of photographs show infant children working on the plantations with their fathers and mothers, who would be forced to effectively hand over their newborns to ensure they were back to work within days of giving birth.Enslaved children can be seen posing in torn clothes for the camera and three African-American boys are seen sat amongst the wreckage of the Civil War.By 1860, it is estimated that more than two million slaves in America were under the age of 20 and even in infancy, slaves were viewed by their masters and by society as a whole as monetary assets - not legal persons.Tragically, even after they were liberated, many of the children's impoverished lives did not change as they continued to carry out the same tasks as they were forced to as slaves - sometimes even on the same plantations - but this time as workers.Two African American boys from North Carolina, circa 1864.The two young boys (left) were photographed in New Berne, a city that was captured early on in the Civil War by Union soldiers.The picture was likely taken by a photographer sympathetic to the Union cause and the children would have been born into slavery.The Emancipation Proclamation and the subsequent 13th amendment banning slavery would have changed the course of these boys lives.Right are a brother and sister, former slaves, holding hands and wearing ripped and torn clothing.They were owned by Thomas White of Mathews County, Virginia, until Captain Riley, 6th USOI, turned them over to the Society of Friends to educate at the Orphan's Shelter in Philadelphia.The photograph is entitled 'As we found them' Mothers, who gave birth to children on the plantations, were expected to return to work as soon as possible and child slaves would not automatically live with their mothers in their traditional families.Limited, cramped conditions and the lack of state recognition of slave marriage often led to children being placed with adults other than their parents or being sent to sleep on a mat in the master's house.Since slave children were not fully functional workers, they were given smaller rations than adults and sometimes not even given clothes.It appears not to have been an unusual sight to see naked children on plantation and even when clothing was provided, it was rarely replaced as they got older.Ages at which slaves were put to work varied between plantations, but toddlers were known to be sent to the fields alongside their mothers.However more tragically, between 1820 and 1830 approximately 30 percent of all slave children born in the Upper South were immediately taken from their families and sold to the Deep South to work in the ha

Men Of The Deeps,Coal Mines Of Cape Breton
Cape Breton Miner,New Waterford,Glace Bay,Nova Scotia Music By Men Of The Deeps.. Early Mining The southeastern part of Cape Breton Island is home to the Sydney Coal Field, an extensive underground coal seam extending at an angle from the shore beneath the seafloor of the Cabot Strait. This large deposit of high-sulphur coal was first extracted by French soldiers from Fortress Louisbourg in 1720 at nearby Port Morien. A major coal industry developed during the 19th century, becoming the largest energy project in British North America at its height of production. The largest integrated steel mill in the British Commonwealth was constructed on Sydney Harbor in 1901. The coal and steel industries went into decline following World War II and never fully recovered. They were nationalized by the federal and provincial governments during the late 1960s with the intention of closing them by the 1980s, however production increased in the 1970s as a result of rising world oil and steel prices. By the 1990s, environmental degradation (see Sydney Tar Ponds) and economic ruin was facing the industrial Cape Breton region. The steel mill and last coal mine were closed in 2001 and the area has been struggling to adapt. While the urban area of eastern Cape Breton County influenced by the coal and steel industries came to be referred to as "Industrial Cape Breton", many rural communities in the rest of Cape Breton Island have been relatively stable economically, largely due to the mix of fishing, forestry, small-scale agriculture, and a growing tourism industry as a result of the spectacular scenery found throughout the island. In 1914 the SCOTIA steel mill was closed and in 1920 both DOMCO/DISCO and SCOTIA were merged into a new company named British Empire Steel and Coal Company (BESCO). The copyright of this section might be in question and is likely from UMWA material. IN MARCH OF 1925, Cape Breton coal miners were receiving $3.65 in daily wages and had been working part-time for more than three years. They burned company coal to heat company houses illuminated by company electricity. Their families drank company water, were indebted to the company "Pluck Me" store and were financially destitute as evidenced by the company "Bob Tailed Sheet". Local clergy spoke of children clothed in flour sacks and dying of starvation from the infamous "four cent meal". The miners had fought continuously since 1909 for decent working conditions, an eight hour day and a living wage. The British Empire Steel Corporation (BESCO) was controlled by President Roy M. Wolvin and Vice-President J.E. McClurg who defended these conditions by frankly stating, DEVCO and SYSCO On July 7, 1967 the Cape Breton Development Corporation (DEVCO) was created and on March 30, 1968 all DOSCO mines were expropriated for $12 million by DEVCO. At the same time, the provincial government formed the Sydney Steel Corporation (SYSCO) and took over DOSCO's steel mill, with the aim being to gradually control the shut down of this industry. DEVCO brought in new tourism initiatives throughout Cape Breton Island and funded various community economic development programs, however politics and other factors such as the 1973 oil crisis brought about by the OPEC embargo following the Yom Kippur War saw demand for coal increase dramatically, particularly for electrical generation. The federal government reversed course and chose to expand, rather than retract, the production of coal and opened new mines and modernized its DOSCO-inherited properties to serve new electrical generating stations. During the 1980s the provincial government also modernized the steel mill, however both coal and steel encountered production and financial difficulties in the 1990s and DEVCO and SYSCO both decommissioned their operations by the turn of the century or shortly thereafter. The last underground coal mine on Cape Breton Island closed in November 2001. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Horton Mine: Encountering a Ghost in a Haunted, Abandoned Mine (Summer 2013)
I had a startling encounter with the supernatural while exploring the abandoned Horton Mine located near the massive Victorine Mine in Nevada. The Horton Mine dates back to the mid-1800s. I have been inside over a hundred abandoned mines, but this one was definitely the creepiest. As I ventured hesitantly down the tunnel, it felt more and more wrong. You'll see in the video the supernatural occurrence that caused me to ultimately turn around and head back out of the tunnel.

U.S. Child Labor, 1908-1920
A look at child labor in the early 20th century in the United States as represented through the photography of Lewis W. Hine. The film documents the use of child labor in industry, including the exploitation of children and the lower classes in American society. Many of the jobs were extremely dangerous and numerous children and adults were injured or killed in the attempt to advance in society. The viewer must understand the context of the situation at the time and think of the individuals from the perspective that it could be one of their ancestors, in order to fully grasp the emotion of the video.

A few hundred yards east of the beautiful village of St Monans and standing above a raised beach close to the shore is St Monans Windmill. The East Neuk of Fife is a stunning area, and the villages strung out along its southern coast are sublime. Combine this setting with the traditional rural associations of a windmill and it is hard to imagine a more idyllic place. Nothing could be more misleading. St Monans Windmill is the most tangible reminder of an industry that for centuries blighted the environment of coastal communities right along both shores of the Firth of Forth: salt production. Salt had been a valuable commodity through much of history, and the Roman's occasional use of it to pay their troops brought the word "salary" into being. Traditionally it was mined as "rock salt", though later on, shoreside locations in sunny climes started to be used to evaporate sea water in shallow ponds to produce "bay salt". By the late medieval period, in places where coal was produced in coastal locations, it became common for "industrial salt" to be produced. This was a process in which coal fires burned under metal pans full of seawater until the water had evaporated, leaving just the salt. Coal has been mined for many centuries from both sides of the Firth of Forth, and salt pans were in use in Culross from as early as the 1500s. Before long there were few places along either bank of the River Forth where salt was not being extracted to serve the needs of industries like glass and pottery manufacture. Salt was also increasingly in demand as a food preservative, and especially as a fish preservative, allowing the growing catches of Scotland's fishing ports to be exported. The legacy of salt extraction remains mostly in a series of placenames alongside the River Forth involving "pan" or "pans". The most well known of these is Prestonpans, where industrial salt extraction continued until as recently as 1959. Most production alongside the Forth ceased after 1823, when changes in the tax regime meant rock salt from England became much cheaper. Salt production at St Monans is due to Sir John Anstruther, who became the local laird in 1753. In 1771 he and his business partner, Robert Fall, established the Newark Coal and Salt Company. Coal was extracted from land immediately to the north of the windmill from a mine whose site is now occupied by Coal Farm. The salt pans were housed in nine buildings on the raised beach below the windmill, whose locations can still be seen today. The role of the windmill was to provide the power to pump sea water from tidally-fed reservoirs cut into the rocks offshore into the salt pans. Production went on round the clock and at the height of operations the salt pans employed 20 men, while the colliery serving it employed a further 36 men. The salt pans were linked to the coal mine by a waggonway, which also connected both to Pittenweem harbour. Here major improvements were paid for by Sir John Anstruther, on condition that ships carrying his coal and salt had priority over other traffic. An indication of salt's value lies in the high levels of tax it attracted; the way it was stored in bonded buildings, like whisky today; and the way it was actively smuggled to avoid duties. Perhaps the most telling sign of its relative value was that it was deemed acceptable to burn eight tons of coal to produce one ton of salt. An underground fire in 1794 badly disrupted the local production of coal, and it seems that from this time use of the waggonway to Pittenweem ceased. Coal continued to be produced to feed the salt pans into the early 1800s, but it seems that the entire operation had already ceased production by the time of the tax changes in 1823. The stump of St Monans Windmill survived, and has been restored and re-roofed since the end of the 1980s. You can also see where the salt pans would once have stood. Imagining the choking fumes and smoke that would once have permeated the whole area is, thankfully, more difficult against the beautiful backdrop of the East Neuk.

Mountain Ash, Glamorgan, Wales (1926)
Miners and their families in the mining towns of the Welsh valleys just before the General Strike of May 1926, an unsuccessful attempt to force the government to act to prevent wage reduction and worsening conditions for coal miners. This extract comes from Claude Friese-Greene's 'The Open Road' - originally filmed in 1925/6 and now re-edited and digitally restored by the BFI National Archive. Britain seen in colour for the first time was heralded as a great technical advance for the cinema audience - now we can view a much improved image, but one which still stays true to the principles of the colour process. The rather haphazard journey from Land's End to John O'Groats creates a series of moving picture postcards. Look out for shots containing the component colours - red and blue-green - such as when a little girl in a red coat and hat walks among peacocks in the grounds of a castle, and three girls with red curly hair pose by the sea at Torquay. The car is a Vauxhall D-type - considered a sporty model at the time. A long-distance journey by car was a relatively new concept, with none of the amenities en route now taken for granted. The visit to a petrol station shows smoking on the forecourt: no health and safety issues back then! The travelogue ends with a series of recognisable London landmarks. Much remains the same - one major exception being the volume of traffic on the roads.

2017 Maps of Meaning 01: Context and Background
In this lecture, I discuss the context within which the theory I am delineating through this course emerge: that of the cold war. What is belief? Why is it so important to people? Why will they fight to protect it? I propose that belief unites a culture's expectations and desires with the actions of its people, and that the match between those two allows for cooperative action and maintains emotional stability. I suggest, further, that culture has a deep narrative structure, presenting the world as a forum for action, with characters representing the individual, the known, and the unknown -- or the individual, culture and nature -- or the individual, order and chaos. --- SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL --- Direct Support: https://www.jordanbpeterson.com/donate Merchandise: https://teespring.com/stores/jordanbpeterson --- BOOKS --- 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-life/ Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning/ --- LINKS --- Website: https://jordanbpeterson.com/ 12 Rules for Life Tour: https://jordanbpeterson.com/events/ Blog: https://jordanbpeterson.com/blog/ Podcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/podcast/ Reading List: https://jordanbpeterson.com/great-books/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jordan.b.peterson/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drjordanpeterson --- PRODUCTS --- Self Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.com/ Understand Myself personality test: https://understandmyself.com/ Merchandise: https://teespring.com/stores/jordanbpeterson

Peak District - Lathkill Dale & Magpie Mine Via Monyash
Ok - so this is my 4th attempt at a video and shot with the minimal of equipment. In this video I thought I would try out a time-lapse whilst I walk a section of Lathkill Dale. Probably about 1200 pics in thisclip. Again, I mixed in some shots which kind of stabilises the overall video effect as I don’t have a tripod yet. The GoPro (under £90 version!) is great in bright conditions but is not so good in poor light as well as this version cannot utilise a mike extension and the mike is not that cool unless you shout in the back of it. I think a great addition would be a Sony RX100 to get some non GoPro video and stills input, as well as some focus-pull effects which I think would work with the style I seem to be developing.. What I learn is that you cannot have enough pockets as well as you need to allow more time whist stopping to take shots and learn some history along the way! In this video I used 2 new music tracks I created and the Magpie Mine section track (PeakSheepz) was created specifically with that mine in mind with the mix & B&W clips. It’s a rather doleful piece but I kind of like it now as it does fit the mine. As always - best listened to in HD on headphones with the sound turned up – preferably with good bass! The walk Another round trip of about 12 miles walk in which I discover the lead mine, Magpie Mine and I discover a little about its 300 year history. Some gruesome competitive tales lurked underground as miners tried to smoke each other out while nearby mine competitors were found hacking though the same vein - causing several deaths in the early 1800's. The remains of Magpie Mine are probably the best example in the UK of a 19th. Century lead mine. The area's mining has a fascinating history spanning almost 300 years. Continuing on through the village of Monyash, which is steeped in history itself dating back to the 11th century ~ the parish church of St Leonard’s dates back to the 12th century. Monyash was an important lead mining centre for the High Peak and even had had its own Barmote Court, which sat at the Bull’s Head at Easter to settle mining disputes and to hear complaints of theft, trespass and grievances of lead miners. Judgements were made based on custom and precedent handed down over the years. Moving on, I discover the most beautiful Lathkill Dale and its brilliant short but crystal clear Lathkill River. The source of this river would normally be from the Lathkill Head cave but in dryer conditions first appears further down the Dale starting from a tiny spring out of the ground and soon turns into a river complete with torrents and weirs along the way. Then its back to Over Haddon car park via the tolling of the 1880 St Ann church bells - as heard in the video. The views from the graveyard are fantastic. The most famous gravestone ihere s that of Sir Maurice Oldfield, a former head of the MI6 and the sundial on the south wall is a must see.

Recovering Relics - 1860 Abraham Lincoln Campaign Token Found in Bottle Dump
I have been metal detecting at a colonial farm house for several months. The property is about 20 acres of mostly woods and open fields. A few months ago I discovered the house's old bottle dump, sitting in the back corner of the property. Many of the bottles were broken, not many of them were full. The oldest fragments of bottles date back to the 1880's and the most recent bottles only the 1920's or 30's. It's a massive bottle dump with a large surface area, and the array of types of bottles and relics that are in the dump are endless. On December 1st, I went back to the bottle dump to poke around to find a few more keepers before the ground froze up. I was able to make a few really neat finds and I was surprised at the amount of intact bottles I found. But the find of the day, or even find of a lifetime for that matter, was not a bottle. I discovered a small token laying in the dirt, and thinking nothing of it at first, I placed it in my backpack and didn't look at it until later that evening. After further research on my find, I learned that what I had found was actually a campaign token for Abraham Lincoln's and Hannibal Hamlin's run for Presidency in 1860. The token featured a tintype photograph of Lincoln and Hamlin on both sides, but mine of course had rusted out. The token is in unbelievable condition for being 153 years old. The campaign token is not only one of my greatest finds ever, but a valued piece of American history and represents a time in America where slavery was still very prominent and the nation was geared towards a Civil War. I am very proud of this find and it will stay in my possession for as long as I live.
