Description

The images in this group show mines, miners at work, and the tools they used. They also illustrate the effect of the mines and the mining industry on California's landscape. Rivers were dammed or became clogged with sediment, forests were logged to provide needed timber, and the land was torn up — all in pursuit of gold.
