Q: What designate a Hot photo?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Zeche H [an abandoned coal mine in Germany] had a room where miners changed into their work clothes and put all their belongings in the steal baskets you see in the photo. A basket a person, clothes in the basket, watches and bracelets at curly stick-outs and rings and earrings at the top. He had to raise the basket before going underground. This so they knew who was underground.
