Knee Pads

Knee Pads

Description

Many times the seam of coal in tunnels were only 3 feet high, and early coal miners had to crawl on their hands and knees, working on their sides or backs in the dirty environment of the mine, frequently in damp, cold wet conditions. Knee pads, like the ones you see here, offered some limited comfort to their knees.
