The Copper Range Railroad and Copper Country Historical
is happy to bring you
Selected photos from the American Memory Collection

There are 75 or so photos here which I have painstakingly extracted from the American Memory Collection. Actually most, if not all come from The Detroit Publishing Company and were taken between 1880 and 1920. When you view the photo you will be viewing the full image not the thumbnail you would normally get when you use the search tool. They are mostly Keweenaw area and Marquette photos but include others from around the U.P.

These are the word(s) I used to locate these photos: copper (111), michigan railroad (4826), houghton (22), hancock (78), calumet michigan (7) lake superior (57) michigan mining (4016) marquette (90)
