Bill,

Thanks ... it lets us know what it was like. If some of those are layered in to Google Earth and many more that are not shown we would really have a lot of relics to look for.

Awesome Bill,

I love old photos. In the one showing the miner in a tunnel , have dug the point of a pick just like the one he is using, I didn't know what it was until now.
