A coal-mining area that at one time provided an impressive portion of the State's income. Here are the people who lived the life, worked in mile-deep mines, used explosives to dislodge coal and were paid around $1 a ton for their efforts. Housing, at $4 a month, was supplied by the mine company. Water came from a barrel at the curb and each room had a light cord from the ceiling. Sport competition was the major entertainment and schooling was provided by the mine owners. All in all, a hard life Plus details of the effect of mine closures on the City of Raton. On business and more importantly on the social structure. As told by those there.
