Thanks. The mine was closed in the middle 80-thies of 20 century, and of course I wasn't there, but it is easy to imagine the the dark coal dust an mud covering everything inside the galeries.

These are really nice photos.

My family and I toured an old gold mine in Colorado once. My camera bag made it a really tight squeeze for me. It is amazing how little space miners have to work in.
