The study about the factory colony of the Jindrich mine in Moravska Ostrava, the oldest workers's colony in the urban area as a part of a wider research project, relates to some older research work of M. Myska and has been, so far, the only compact text on the already nonexistent Jindrich colony. In the introduction of the study the workers's colony is localized within the urban area, however, the major part of its text, drafted on the basis of the study of contemporary press, contemporaries' narratives and the archive materials in several Moravian-Silesian archives, contains an excursion into the historical development of the colony's architecture with the reflection of its housing conditions.
