Indian Head Breaker

Indian Head Colliery, coal region

Zerbe, PA (Schuylkill Co.)

This breaker was about a mile from my home and my father hauled coal from there to be delivered to New York, Philadelphia and everywhere in between. This gorgeous photo was taken by Scott Herring, a photographer who has dedicated years to capturing the essence of the Anthracite Region. Thank you Scott.

This site is dedicated to my Dad, Grandfathers, and all the brave souls who worked in the coal mines of Pennsylvania's Anthracite region, and to their families and friends who call the Coal Region, and Schuylkill County in particular, "home" -- many of them for generations.
