Caption: Cornish tin mine workers, 19th-century artwork. Women with tools used to break up tin deposits that have been mined from underground and brought to the surface. 19th-century tin mines in Cornwall, UK, employed hundreds of men. Young boys also worked in the mines, as well as the girls and young women seen here. Thousands of tons of tin and copper were produced, but most of the mines had closed by the early 20th century. Artwork from the 13th volume (first period of 1894) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
