“As soon as his shift finished, he lit up a cigarre. He smoked like a chimney.” - This was a description of a former miner.
The object displayed shows a cigar box. 70% of all miners smoked, although of course not within the mines. Yet, after the second World War, the cigarette industry was booming and cigars transformed into a luxury object, mostly used by the higher ranked miners, the deputies.
On the box, the name Albert Cuypmarkt is written, which refers to the largest trade market of the Netherlands, located in Amsterdam in the quarter De Pijp. In the beginning of the 20th century, this quarter was famous for its criminality, poverty and prostitution.
Furthermore, Staatsmijnen 1902-1952 stands on the box - the peak of the cole mines in the Netherlands.
Gluck auf is the usual greeting of the miners.
