Description

    Photograph Mining Scene Goldfield, Nevada, ca. 1907. Scarce photograph of Goldfield combination mining company in Goldfield, Nevada. The spur built by the Bullfrog Goldfield railroad can be seen in the foreground with changing room of mining company in the background. The significance of the changing room to the history of mining in southern Nevada is unsurpassed. It was the changing room that began the miners' strike that would eventually lead to Theodore Roosevelt sending Federal troops to Goldfield. The miners coming off shift were high grading (hiding ore in their clothing); the company in an effort to stop the practice built a changing house with an arm guard posted. The miners were forced to undress and change their clothes before leaving company grounds. The head frame of the Goldfield Florence mine is also visible in the photo. Measures approximately 8.50" x 6.50".
