I want to know more about him!

Too bad all we have is his first name, or I would be begging Joe Manning to do research on Dave! I wonder if it would be possible to find out about him, given the information we have.

Pusher

I noticed that Dave is a "pusher." What is a pusher's job in a coal mine?

Huck Finn!

If ever there was a picture of Huck Finn, this has got to be it!

this is in Birmingham, AL.

this is in Birmingham, AL. we're trying to turn Red Mountain, where this may have been taken, into a huge recreational park bigger than Central Park in NYC.

Check out the info:
