Scope and content
Mining operation near Breckenridge, Colorado. Two men stand next to ore cars stopped on elevated tracks leading from the mine's adit (opening). A wagon pulled by two horses is stopped on the dirt road that runs under the tracks. Mine tailings are piled high on either side of the road. In the background is a large wooden structure with a smokestack, probably an ore bin or mill, and log cribbing on the steep hillside. Circa 1898-1913.
