The building on the left was apart of the Glen Alum Coal Company Store. Moving left to right, the smaller building in the middle of the picture was the Post Office, and the larger building in the middle of the picture was the Company Movie Theater.
Scrip was issued by the company owned stores to those employees who made a request between paydays. Scrip would be deducted from miners pay checks, but could be used for basic commodities such as food, clothing, and supplies.
Coal is still being transported throughout Glen Alum today.
