Details

A crew of about thirty men pauses for a portrait (and a smoke) at their small hard rock mine somewhere near La Grande, in Union County. At this time there were a number of small mines, many for gold, in this part of Oregon.

See detail view 1 and 2 for a closer look at the men who had chosen this occupation. My guess is that this was not easy work. Also see Related Items below for another photo of the same mine.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
