People's Journal article explains how shale was found in the Addiewell area.

The article at the other side of this page (from the People's Journal 1934) was presented to Loganlea Miners' Club a number of years ago by William Fleming McQueen. The article is self-explanatory, but I think this document is very important relating to the history of Addiewell.  The photo shows William Fleming McQueen and his wife Margaret at their Golden Wedding celebration a few years ago.
