Title supplied by cataloger.
Three images duplicate, in a smaller format, some of those found in the Hearst Mining collection of views by C.E. Watkins (BANC PIC 1905.17175--ffALB) However, printed captions differ between the two collections. Captions identifying site as the "North Bloomfield Hydraulic Mine" in this collection read "Malakoff Diggings" in the Hearst Mining collection. The "Iron Pipe" image (.01659) in this set may be unique.
Photographed by Carleton E. Watkins.
