Your pictures are great, thank you for also including a picture of the explanation. Facinating. It really highlights man's care of man. How freakish to have that much obvious responsibility for someone else's life.

Fascinating post and great photos!

What an interesting piece of history, Stewart - well told in photos (and photos of the info boards). Sure looks worthy of a visit.

Loved your header too (although they look like a 'clean' dozen ;>)

This mine looks like a fascinating place to visit. The machinery and technology of the time the mine was in use is interesting for the glimpse it gives of the lives of the miners. I think it would be quite an experience to go down the shaft.

Without reading the header made me think of the "Yellow submarine" and indeed that was it ! I have just been on a big exposition "The Golden Sixties" in Liège, of course there were the Beatles too, I would never have believed when I was twenty to see my furniture my music, my clothes etc in an exhibition, lol !
