So the Poles know about Snowhite or is it the other way around? Maybe there is some folklore in Europe, about small people being the miners. Terry Pratchett always have the gnomes and other such fol, working the lower levels.
Tom Wilson: Pratchett or Disney must have influenced.

I can’t actually remember seeing this one, but I must have.
Tom Wilson: I think the different tour groups took slightly different routes, so this one may not have been on yours.
A bit of humour after all the serious displays.
Tom Wilson: Makes a change smile Underground Disney.
