Artist's Description

This was where the miners loaded onto the skips, one of which is on the far rails above. The same rails lifted out full ore cars which went further up the collar and were dumped into the rest of the headframe (unseen in this photograph because it was deemed too unsafe for tourists to be near and torn down). As you can see, even the remaining portions are too rickety with age to be approached but consider this: the structure is mostly made of wood, it stands outdoors, and all of it has stood since 1850 thru rain, ice, snow, wind, and California earthquakes.

This shot is the upper portion of the ones in the dark just inside the mine opening.
