Painting of industrial generator coal mine

"Provence Coal Mine"

This picture shows the electricity generating room of an old coal mine in Provence, which is now open to the public.
The large machine at the rear is a naval diesel engine which has been modified and coupled to a generator.

The raw, industrial feel of this mine appealed to me, and I took many photos as we went around. This room, in particular,
struck me as being full of echoes of a fascinating past.
