Just about this time in 1898 a new railroad was coming to the Copper Country to serve the new mines opening up in the South Range. The Copper Range Railroad promoted the coming of the railroad in many ways. This postcard, produced in 1899 is just one example and also fits well with last month's postcard promoting Nancy Sanderson's new postcard book which has been produced to help support the Keweenaw County Historical Society. Happy Holidays from our family to yours.
