These pictures are taken during the open day at
Lerche shaft in Hamm-Lerche (Germany). This shaft was sunk deeper for about 300
metres and will be used for bringing the miners and material underground to a
depth of about 1300 metres.
Just like during the 100-years anniversary of
Ost colliery the open-day's organization was excellent and the weather was
wonderful, as well. Bright sunshine and crowds of visitors rewarded the effords
that were made to organize this day.
