              Men use sledgehammers on a section of riveted metal pipeline that leads down the slope of a hill, probably Gold Hill north of Breckenridge, Colorado. The pipe was used to feed water downhill to a hydroelectric power plant. This may be part of the hydro-plant operations that drew water from Straight Creek to produce power down the Lower Blue River valley.
