I didnt dare touch these clothes. The mine closed ages ago and these were left behind. A silent withness of what used to be.

a abandoned charcoal mine in Belgium.

    Amazing that they would still be hanging. Another great series of this old wreck of a building

  • I think if you would touch them, theyd fall apart.
    At some point in history, after the site got abandoned, they put a security guard on it. So that preserved most of the stuff thats still there. Its locked all the way around, and if you want to get in, you have to climb a pretty steep hill, and slide down through the mudd on the other side, cross a little stream. So vandalists wont go there. Urbex people do…:-)

    Dat ziet er op dit PLAATJE prima uit, Nicole. Maar vuile was moet je niet buiten hangen, toch ..?

  • Maar Jan…het hangt binnen hoor :-))
