One very interesting detail in the photo above is the appearance of a Copper Range Railroad Section House and tool shed at the far right as well as something I am unable to identify, on the left side of this photo. It appears to be a trestle, maybe unfinished or a place to dump something, not sure what. My Sanborn maps stop short of these structures. Anyone have any guesses?
Pass them along on the Discussion Board. As well if you have any ideas on a few of these below.
