Standing forefront in this image is four unidentified men posing near a coal mine shaft. A key to Lethbridge’s initial boom, coal mines generated work for many young men and brought people to the city. Black Diamond features “Galt Coal” which was a leader in the coal mining industry and helped to forge Lethbridge into the city we enjoy today.
Black Diamond is one of three in a series of murals by Trotter that acknowledge the past of Lethbridge through his rendering of historical photographs.
