BE 1450W 60 yd.
Erected at Pittsburg & Midway's (P&M)
Colonial Mine , Madisonville, Ky. in 1964. I think that this is the
first 1450 made. This picture was made just after the boom was
removed or dropped. A welder stood on the gantry and cut the support
ropes one at a time until it fell. Hard to believe, but I saw it on video.
