Drilling in a breast, 1936
"I watched men working in the breasts, huge domed chambers cut out in the coal veins, digging holes with eight-foot heavy iron hand drills, tamping in the dynamite, setting the time fuses, and shooting the blasts. Everywhere was beauty Rembrandtesque black and white, abstract patterns of tunnel shapes, a thousand cubistic forms in the walls of black blasted coal."
-- Harry Sternberg
