Hi! first post here, been around the sites for about a year but never joined up...... so got my act together and joined!

My first report if from my recent euro trip with the mrs, this one was solo as she couldn't hack the entry unfortunately! but this helped inside as there were workers working inside and around the building!

History:

Zeche Hugo is a former coal mine. Established in 1873 the mine continued to operate until 2000, at which time the coal seam had been almost fully exploited. At it's height in the 1960's it employed 5000 and excavated 3.5 millions tons a year. It operated out of 8 shafts and eventually reached a depth of 1200 metres.

Zeche Hugo is famous for its large hall of 'bird cages', officially known as 'Kaue', they were used to hold workers clothing and possessions during their shifts. As the mine worked into the latter half of the 20th century, a large proportion of the workforce consisted of immigrants, mostly of Turkish descent.
