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)

The Nancy Sanderson Collection.

Nancy relates that she purchased an old photo album in Chassel some time ago and was interested in the photos of the railroads it contained and wanted to share them.

I have identified most of these (please correct me if I am incorrect and please help identify the two I can't)

Thank you for passing them along as they are wonderful photos and also very rare.
