    Three Mining Photographs by W. H. Jackson, ca. 1880s-1890s. While traveling throughout the West, Jackson recorded these images: (a) an exterior shot of the Gold Bug Mining Co. Office with a man on a buckboard led by two horses; (b) the interior of the Gold Bug building showing large pieces of machinery being watched over by a miner; (c) an exterior shot of the mine opening with men and equipment around it. It is not certain if this is the Gold Bug Mining Co. of California, Idaho, Nevada, or Oregon, however the background scenery seems to suggest a Nevada site. Each image measures 9.25" x 7" and is affixed to Jackson's slightly larger mount with gilt printing at lower left and gilt edging all around.

    Condition: A few scuffs and minor wear to corners of mounts, otherwise all are in fine condition.
