& Copper Country Historical Page
Photo Album X
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)
|Paul has been a large contributor to this site,
with his many personal photos and a collection of vintage shots as well. He has also
published many fine articles on modeling this area, as many of you know who are fellow
railroad buffs. His classic series in Railroad Model Craftsmen was the spark, for many
people I have met, that got them interested in modelling this area. Many thanks to
Paul for his support of Copper Country history, and especially for his help at the Copper Country Depot answering questions.
These photos were taken in 1964-65 by Paul unless otherwise noted.

Copper Range (ex-Green Bay & Western) #605 caboose in Houghton. With GB&W marks visible under the paint. Looks like an interesting modelling project, has anyone tried it?

This photo is from the Paul Meier collection and was taken between 1915 and 1917 on Kearsarge St. in Painesdale. The car in the left of the picture contains Paul's Great-grandfather Anton F. Haun and two of his sons. Fredrick Haun, Paul's grandfather took this photo. You can also see the Finnish Temperance Hall, followed by the Opera house and in the distance the Sarah Sargeant Paine Memorial Library, all now just a memory.
