Zeche H - B&W hdr's

1873 - Working in the mines came with big risk. There was a good chance of poisonous gasses or a collapse. After an accident remaining relatives often had no income at all. The miners had to leave there belongings and especially those of more value behind for relatives to claim in case of an accident.
Zeche H had a room where miners changed into their work clothes and put all there belongings in the steal baskets you see in the photo. A basket a person, clothes in the basket, watches and bracelets at curly stick-outs and rings and earrings at the top. He had to raise the basket before going underground. This so they knew who was underground.

More then a century later Zeche H closes it's doors. Most of the buildings are gone and yet to be torn down is this beautiful room with its thousands of baskets (up to 3382 or so).

beautiful shots and write-up martino - as usual. these sorts of rooms were common in many of the old industries:
(bethlehem steel)

if you watch the movie "the deer hunter", one of the scenes near the beginning shows the characters together in a room like this.

Great photos, and nice merges. I love the pseudo-texture created by the layers of rope hanging from the ceiling.

Thanks for the history lesson as well!

i think these are my favorite shots of yours that i've seen to date.

a few others here have summed it up better than i have with the 'holy shit' statement. i agree w them.

Amazing shots. Those are the kind of pictures that you need B&W to really do them justice.

1 and 2 are awesome, very unique. That place in unlike anything I have seen before.

There is something about #3 that makes it stand out in my mind. That one is probably my favorite.
