Wow! A boudoir print showing interior of a mill with mining workers (and a dog) at the refining end of the mining operation. Labeled The Calaveras Consolidated Gold Mining Company, Robinson's Ferry, Calaveras County, California. This mine was located approximately 2.4 Km south of Carson Hill below Angels Camp and operated from the early 1890’s into the beginning of the 20th century. Robinson’s Ferry operated across the Stanislaus River which now empties into the New Melones Lake which has now inundated the mine site. Named for John W. Robinson, the partner of the Robinson & Mead store located just below the ferry. Harvey Woods operated the ferry from 1856 to 1895. It profited from the success of the lodes on Carson Hill. In 1899, there were 3 stamp mills and one arrastre. [Ref: Gudde] 4.75 x 7.75" photo on 6 x 9" mount. Some soiling. Date: Location: Calaveras County, California HWAC# 572079
