Old jacket

Before going down into the mine, the miners had to exchange a lamp to the "lampisterie" (lamps room)after giving his personal token. The token was put on the corresponding nail(left to the jacket on this photo) to indicate that he was still working at the "bottom". Each miner had his point card, where his number was listed and the operation being implemented.
