The stairs that connect the breakwater and light station (Leica M6/Kodak Ektar).
Looking through the loading platform of Frontenac Mine toward Black Hawk. In 1900, you would see Druid Mine on the left and Aduddell on the right.
Looking out of the labs at the company garages.

The playground used to be near the school which is now in ruins.
The southernmost houses in Gilman are seen through the pines on the right, near the tram stop.
