Le charbonnage du goufre

Mon père était ingénieur au charbonnage du Gouffre.
Un jour de juillet 1956, il m'a emmené passer une journée complète dans les galeries et les tailles du N°10.
Ce souvenir ne m'a jamais quitté. je suis toujours rempli d'admiration pour ceux qui y travaillaient.
Je suis vraiment très ému de découvrir ces photos.

Thank you for sharing your photos!

Hauntingly beautiful. Wow, the thought of the amount of effort and money it would take to clean them up and restore them boggles my mind. I will consider exploring some of these if they are still standing when I go to Europe at some future time. I saw a book in English on abandoned places in a French book store in December. The photos and stories of the places in it were spectacular but it was sold when I went back to get it and now I am searching for it on the internet. I found you in that search, amazing photos!
