Scott Herring, well-known local anthracite historian and photographer, aims his camera at a flower outside the Newkirk Tunnel near Tamaqua.
Last September, Herring celebrated 40 years of his work with friends and family at the Vonz Restaurant in the Tamaqua Train Station.
“Nearly forty years ago, at age 13, I journeyed into these dark fields, with camera in hand, and began collecting messages and memories that have become our regional family history and will forever represent us to the future,” noted Herring during the event. For more information about Scott Herring, see a small portion of his work on display at the Tamaqua Historical Society, or visit him online at www.TheLastAnthracitePhotographer.com, www.HardCoalChronicles.com, or www.Starkkohlenfelder.com.
