The tools and equipment of mine rescue from the beginning of the 20th century
In Mecsek and Pécs the hard coal mining started at the turn of the 18th and 19th century. Documents mentioning the occurance of coal are known since 1701. In 1769 was delivered the first report about the coal of Pécs to the Chamber of Court after the warning of Queen Mária Terézia.
