Hanging Garden – 2012

This abandoned mine building was a joy to explore and photograph because it was so unique compared to anywhere else I have been.

There were thousands of these hanging baskets filling a an open room the size of a football field.  Workers would place their valuables inside the baskets, then raise it toward the ceiling using a chain which they would then lock.  I would imagine that the use of these hanging baskets was more space economical than traditional lockers.

An abandoned Mine in Germany.
