Going through Mary’s photo collection this afternoon, I came across this snapshot – date unknown.
And here is the photo back, with a transcription below.
A scene near Marysville Mont. Highest point is Bald Mt. First light spots to the rite is Bald Mt. mine. Next light spots in the gulch is Belmont mine. Marysville lies in the bottom between those mts and the ones in front with the pine trees on. Taken about 19___ by Evelyn Schenck Buttner. By the white spot on the left (a mine) is the power line going over the Continen- tal Divide Rocky Mts.
It was around 25 degrees below zero, the men didn’t go to work. Big Jim Sullivan of Butte was buried yesterday.
January 14, 1932
I went to the bottom of Efil [Eiffel?] Tower (the well), cleaned out the ice and sand and Albert drew it up, as it was full of sand.
