Group Photographs

Group photos including mining workers in their working conditions or in front of the mining mill, along with unknown group photos of well-dressed men.

Four men, one being Daniel Stewart, posing in front of a car on a prospected land for a mine.

Four men, including Daniel R Stewart, looking at mining product that was produced from the mill behind them.

View of a windlass used in the Tri-State Mining District. One miner in the center is standing on a board placed over the shaft hole. On the windlass itself, you can see the hemp rope and ore bucket that would be lowered into the shaft to be filled with ore by a miner below. Unknown location and names of the men. Looks like two of them are not workers and the third man on the right is the operator.
