This book offers a visual glimpse into the past – a documentation of the people, places and activities of a way of life that is gone and a culture that has changed. This project is a tribute, honoring those working people of Campbell’s Creek, who gave so much of their lives to the industrial development of the Kanawha Valley and the State of West Virginia.
