Classic Andy's Angles: The Breaker

I was going through some old photo files the other day, and I saw this.  It's one of my favorite photos of the old Huber Breaker in Ashley.

There was always mixed feelings about this place.  It was the last of the standing Wyoming Valley breakers.  It was big and ugly, and an image of the bad old days.

On the other hand, the breaker, and mining in general, is a huge part of our area's history.  We out to remember the good and the bad.

It became a moot point.  the photo was taken in 2013.  The breaker was demolished a couple of years later.
