"Tunnel party" and marriage in the practice gallery !


After that I presented you the mining museum at Ewald-Fortsetzung colliery in the city of Oer-Erkenschwick (Germany), I can show you some impressions of the "tunnel party" on December 8th and 9th in 2007. The photos show very well how much work has been done by the honorary workers in order to organize an interesting "tunnel party" and they also show the different things that have been presented to the visitors.

Additionally the photos on the bottom of this page can show that the practice gallery is a very nice place for weddings, as well.

Thank you very much for the photos to Heinz Gro▀mann and Rolf Gatberg. If you want further pieces of information about the community that runs the practice gallery, please click here: http://www.museum-oe.de. If you discover yourself in one of the pictures and if you do not want the photo to be published here, please send me an e-mail.

Please click on the photos' small versions in order to enlarge them and to get the corresponding background information. ATTENTION: The pictures' explanations can now be found UNDER the large versions.
