I am looking for any information or how I could get access to photos and information of all kinds on miners who worked in the Drummond Mines in Westville NS and Stellarton NS area. My grandfather George MacDonald worked in the mines.I don't have any dates but he was born 1890 and I do know he worked there in the 1935 when my mother was born. I appreciate any information that can be provided.
There is an excellent book published in 1986 by the Westville Heritage Group and the grade 11 class of westville High School titled" Celebrating our Heritage The History of Westville ." This book has many pictures of the Drummond as well as write ups and shows some of the underground workings, as well as notes regarding its history. Hope this will help.... there should really be no shortage of information in history-loving Pictou County. Charlie
