This study focused on the population of the Salomoun settlement in the City of Ostrava in Moravia, which was the largest mining settlement on the city's registered land and was built between 1868 and 1917 in close proximity to the mine of the same name. The settlement peaked in size in the middle of the 20th century. In the structure of households simple family households predominated. A typical feature of miners' households in the later stage of the settlement's development was the presence of a large number of persons who had no relationship to any member of the family in the household, which was associated with the increasing trend of taking in lodgers.
