Kirkbride Mine.
A Drift opening situated at Oakdale, Allegheny County.  The company began shipping coal in May.  An air shaft has been sunk and a ventilating furnace built.  I measured 9,000 cubic feet of air in circulation and found the mine in pretty good condition regarding ventilation and drainage.
