As a supplement to my article and model of the CRRR Lake Mine depot, I offer this small study of this depot, deep in the heart of the Firesteel region of the Copper Range. The photo was taken around 1911, and shows the depot and the town of Lake Mine, which contained about 150 hearty souls at that time. It is interesting to note in the floor plan of the depot, like many other railroads, the station agent lived in the depot. Unlike most others I have seen the agent and his family must have used the waiting room and/or office as a living room as their isn't one in the plan. What an interesting life it must have been. The photo is part of the Lake Mine collection of the Ontonagon Historical Society and the plans come from the private collection of Bill Gale.
