 今回は恐縮ですが、少し前の写真を載せたいと思います。
1992年に初めて炭鉱の坑内に入った「太平洋炭礦」の写真です。もちろん操業中でした。

この頃の私は「足尾」だけを追っていて、他の鉱山にはいくらかの興味はあっても、
炭鉱にはほとんど興味を感じていませんでした(今思うと本当に残念!)。
研究会の合宿で行ったのですが「坑内に入れる」という理由だけで参加しました。
ですから炭住や施設の写真も撮っていませんし、坑内はもちろん撮影禁止。
それでも切羽まで行き、ドラムカッターを操るオペレーターの近くで採炭
の現場を見学してきました。
陸(おか)に上がると炭鉱労働者と同じお風呂に入り、炭鉱の1日を実体験して来ました。
その体験からかいつの間にか、忘れられない炭鉱の1つになり、お土産の石炭が愛おしいです。

写真的にはとても見せられる写真ではありませんが、何かの参考になれば嬉しいです。

Though it is gratitude this time, I want to publish little previous photographs.
It is the photograph of "Taiheiyou coal mines" which
went into the underground of the coal mine for the first time in 1992.
Of course it is operating.

I today am running after only "Ashio",
even if it is interested in other mines some,
it hardly felt interest with the coal mines(When it thinks now, it is really disappointing !).
It went by camping for training of the society,
it participated only for the reason to "Send it to the underground".
Therefore, company housing and the photograph of the facilities aren't being taken, either,
Of course an underground is prohibition against photography.
Still go to the stopes,
coal mining
was visited for study near the operator who manipulated a drum cutter.
When it is raised from the underground, take a bath coal mine workers,
one day of the coal mines was experienced, and it came.
From that experience, during when,
it becomes one of the coal mines which aren't forgotten,
The coal of the souvenir is being treasured.

Though it is not the photograph as for a photograph, shown very much.
it is happy if it becomes the reference of something.
