Born at, Landwednack, The Lizard, Cornwall, in 1871 the sixth of twelve children of artist Thomas HART. Using watercolours, he painted landscapes of The Lizard area and Cornish coastal scenes.  He liked to paint panoramic views, as did his father. He is recorded as a landscape painter at the family home, Polbrean at The Lizard in1891 and is probably the Thomas D Hart who was a boarder at Mullion Cove Hotel as a watercolour artist in 1901. After that there is little known of his life and he emigrated to USA in 1910.  He arrived in New York on the Majestic on 19th May 1910 and was held for special inquiry by agent Schlaar, reason LPC 10 :15 and then admitted.

The mine worked a nearly north-south striking lead lode extending from the tip of Penhale Point for around 500 metres southwards where the lode passes into the sett of Penhale Mine.

The course of this lode can be clearly seen in the cliffs, marked by the major gangue mineral of a comby structured quartz.

Extensive shallow workings are present on the lode and can be clearly seen in the cliffs as well.

The pumping engine house that formerly stood on Engine Shaft had a fine castellated chimney stack of the same style as that which still survives at Wheal Ellen, Porthtowan.

Unfortunately this engine house and those of the neighbouring Penhale Mine and Phoenix Mine were all demolished following a daylight air raid on the adjacent Penhale army training camp in World War Two.

Wheal Golden's ore was noted as being quite argentiferous with considerable silver being produced along with lead. It is noted that during its working Wheal Golden was equipped with its own smelting house.

The site of Engine Shaft of Wheal Golden lies under the car park of the secure compound that lies on Penhale Point and has been plugged securely following a recent collapse.

These paintings are framed with high end conservation  mountboards which are light-fast and acid-free. They have hand crafted washline mounts.The hinge backs are the same quality. The glass is sealed to prevent dust or bugs getting to the picture.
