In the House of Artists (3)

We are still below the House of Artists, looking at the remnants of the former coal mine. This is the “black stairway” I mentioned in the previous post. In the old days, the miners went up these stairs after their shift to go to the pithead bath. So the other parts of the building could be kept separate from the dirt and dust brought up from the depths below.
