Excerpt from The Wonderland of Work

In a moment we are in darkness, except for the faint glimmer of our lamps. The cage, which has two or three platforms, or decks, is covered in with a huge umbrella-dike iron top, intended to receive and ward off fragments of coal, stone, or other things that might come tumbling from the heights above. Down we go with a rush; and oh! What a strange, horrid, gasping sensation this descent into a coal-mine is! Not a bit as though we were merely gliding rapidly down a walled circular shaft into the depths of the earth, but as though earth itself were rising into space, leaving us poor mortals hundreds of miles below its surface, in an atmosphere of utter darkness and desolation.
