tile factory

I just have to tell you all about this!

Just came back from seeing the new movie, Les Miserables".
The early scenes show an old tile factory in France.

I had just had a book from the school library out, about old tile making,
and in the book, there was a picture of an antique tile mural showing a
tile factory, and low and behold, there was the tile factory, brouoght to
life in the movie.

There is a large square kiln in the center of the factory, three stories
high, and benches all around it where the workers made the tiles. Whew! it
must have been hot working in there.

See it if you can!
