Going Underground: Workers of Bienfait Mines Ltd. in 1915. Note the “pit pony” in the center of the rear of the picture. These animals were stabled underground and used for hauling coal in the mines. Some rarely saw the light of day. Photograph courtesy of Bienfait Coalfields Historical Society Museum.
