Vernette Godfrey sent in this postcard which had been in her family for years, most likely nearly 100 years as this trestle collapse occured sometimes in the 1910's just west of the Simar Station on the Mineral Range, the trestle crossing one of the many branches of the Firesteel River. At the time hauling either Mass or Michigan rock east to Keweenaw Bay. Thanks Vernette for sharing this postcard with all of us. (Kevin Musser Collection).
