The Look of November 13th.
When November 13th and 14th of 1999 came, it was the 90th anniversary of
the Cherry Mine Disaster. This was the weekend the Mine Model was unveiled. As I was entering Cherry early morning, it was
an unseasonably warm day for the time of year. The sky was clear and I thought it wonderful to have the weather conditions
exactly as they were on Saturday Nov. 13th and 14th in 1909. The picture above is a picture I took as
I entered town, the historic town of Cherry on the 90th anniversary. The grain elevator was next to the track that
once went to the coal mine. The track was on the left. The slag pile hills are seen in the distance behind the elevator.
