Tracks for Transporting Coal

Some traces of the infrastructure for transporting and using coal still remain in Lviv. One such remnant is wagon tracks that carried coal through a building’s carriage entrance to the courtyard. In some courtyards there would have been elevators to lift the coal to upper levels. This was a much more efficient and cleaner way to deliver coal to residents than to carry it up the stairs.
