Norman l remember like many kids playing in the Copper works and the pond,which claimed the lives of 3 kids in the late 40s so sad and tragic. |
l also remember a Bitchimum "black wall formed by the residue from the copper being processed it was near the old tip.near to the river.the wall was built in blocks and laid one on top of the other creating a huge black wall may be 10 feet high.as kids we used to look for the indents of different coins that the workers pressed in to the blocks be fore the residue got cold,l am hoping some board member remembers as kids such a money wall.
