Coal Miner's Wife

This is what you look after you take down a ceiling in a house that was heated for many years with coal.

And of course, should you try this in your own home -- wear a respirator.


Hmmm... When we had our roof re-done we got all kinds of black dust in the upstairs. I don't think this house had coal heat, but I could be wrong! I think I assumed it was disintegrated tarpaper?
