Scott Herring has been capturing historic images for 40 years.
Not for his own benefit, but for others.
"The pictures have no value sitting in my files," said Herring, who grew up on Tamaqua's Dutch Hill.
And now, the results of his lifetime passion for anthracite photography will become part of the permanent collection of a Lackawanna County museum.
The images in Scott Herring's Hardcoal Chronicles 40th Anniversary show will be featured at the Anthracite Heritage Museum on Bald Mountain Road in Scranton, beginning Aug. 16.
