Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Welcome To Where Time Stands Still The coal was found in early 1800s, namely 1829 in Zonguldak. Sultan Abdulmecit, in 1849, had a close control over coal, due to the fact that the steamboats in other navies were in the search for it. Around the mid 1800's Sultan obliged every man in EregliCounty to became a mine worker. "In Eregli County, all men above the age of 13 and under the age of 50 are to work in mines." It is a place where time actually does not flow linearly. "Like Slaves in Colonial Countries."
