Miner’s Cap

Description (Brief)
This canvas miner’s cap was made by the T.R. Jones Company of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania during the early 20th century. The cap has a leather brim with a jagged design on the sides. A metal and cardboard lamp bracket sits on the front of the cap, and likely would have held either an oil-wick or carbide lamp.
