Photos from June 12th (Public Tours)

Today we held public tours of the mine site from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Here are a few pictures from the day.

The art of measured drawing.

    Sean,
    I thoroughly enjoyed looking over your articles and postings…After I graduated from Tech I been working in the Power industry and have always been interetsed in old mechanical things, history, wrecked equipment, etc. (while I was at Tech, I rebuilt a small reciprocating steam engine for Asst Prof Gibson in the ME dept)..But the history of the Copper country is fascinating (my wife and I lived in Marquette for about 7 years).. My wife wanted badly to go into archeology but her parents wanted her to do something ‘sensible’ like teaching so she went to OSU and got her masters in special ed.
    When I first heard about Techs program in Industrial Archeology, I was sore tempted to go back, but with a family that’s tough (especially when your kids are in college as well!)
    But maybe when I retire…In the mean time, if you need any help, I may can come up to help dig or clear brush on your next project!!
    Thanks
    Pat
