The Ipswich City Council launched Seniors’ Week today in Marburg. During the event, the new book about local mining from the Rosewood Scrub Historical Society was also launched. Councillor David Pahlke stood in for Mayor Paul Pisasale who was unable to attend. Councillor Sheila Ireland also attended.
“Winning the Coal: Coal Miners’ Stories from the Rosewood Scrub” is available for $15 from the Rosewood Scrub Historical Society. It’s full of miners’ stories as told by the miners themselves, with photographs of some of the local mines, historical mining equipment and an invaluable list of small local mines.
