    Default Some photos of the Kennedy mine - Jackson, CA

    I think Don W. has already posted some photos of these mine structures and please don't compare his images with mine, as I don't have the software to restore them to what they once were. These were taken about 1976, or 1977 when I frequently found myself in this area of the Calif Mother Lode.

    The first photo is the Kennedy mine offices.

    The second photo is an ore sorting structure? There used to be a large stamp mill which burned.

    The last photo is of the same structures without using a telephoto lens.

    Here is a link to the Kennedy mine and you can see that they have done a lot of restoration work since these were taken.

    Great pictures...just as good as Don's in my opinion!
    Of course, I like any picture as it reflects what the camera operator sees.

    Here are some more photos taken at the same time. Interesting to compare them with Dons, taken about ten years or so earlier. One of the wheels had been restored and the others were left where they had fallen.

    I think I'm adding Jackson to my Gold Country trip in May. Thanks for sharing the photos.
