This page is devoted to those of you who wish to share your photos of the Copper Country with those who visit this site. If you have a photo or two or three that you would like to share please send electronic copies to me and I will be happy to display them here. If you don't have access to a scanner and would still like to have your photos displayed here just send me a note and we will work it out. It's a good way to get your photos scanned for free and have fun sharing your work with others in the process. Hope to hear from you soon. (Kevin Musser)

These fine postcards come to us from Bob Bice who was kind enough to send me a CD filled with wonderful postcards from the Keweenaw. Bob's father went to this school until the 6th grade until he had to quit school and start working at the Baltic Mill in Redridge. Bob also had the priviledge of riding the Atlantic and Lake Superior Railroad as a boy and a while ago he sent me a pass from that railroad, first one I had ever seen and I can't thank him enough as the A&LS is my second favorite after the Copper Range. Thank you so much Bob for your contributions to this site and please stop back as I will be displaying all the postcards he sent, many of which I have never seen before.

 

Thank you Bob for sharing your wonderful vintage shots with us. KEM

The Postcards of Bob Bice

This photo came from a postcard prior to 1910 of the schoolhouse in Redridge. Hard to believe this building still stands in Redridge. It comes to us from Bob Bice who was kind enough to send me a CD filled with wonderful postcards from the Keweenaw. Bob's father went to this school until the 6th grade until he had to quit school and start working at the Baltic Mill in Redridge. Bob also had the priviledge of riding the Atlantic and Lake Superior Railroad as a boy and a while ago he sent me a pass from that railroad, first one I had ever seen and I can't thank him enough as the A&LS is my second favorite after the Copper Range.

This view is of the Congregational Church in Redridge. The Finish Evangelical Chruch can be seen on the right (the only church extant in Redridge today, although bearly). The Woodmen's Hall is directly behind the Congregational Chruch.
