The wall as a wave


“The iron hand it ain’t no match for the iron rod
The strongest wall will crumble and fall to a mighty God …”

(Bob Dylan in When he returns)

No more working, no more parking

“I’ll always thank the Lord
When my working day’s through
I get my sweet reward
To be alone with you.”

The abandoned stage of the industrial theater


“When a historic building is left to decay, 
A theatre where once, famous names used to play.
Its stage steeped with memories of happier days, 
Of concerts, comedians and actors in plays.”

(G.B. Hough in Ode To A Dead Theatre (Morecambe Winter Gardens Uk))

The end of mining …


“Hinab, ihr Brüder! in den Schacht!
Hinab mit frohem Mut!
Es ist ein Gott, der für uns wacht,
Ein Vater groß und gut!”

(G.F. Stäudlin in Bergknappenlied)
