Availability: In stock

The story of Butte is the story of underground mining. In the early part of the 1900s, Butte had more than 100,000 people and 400 mines in operation. Open-pit surface mining has replaced underground operations, and only a handful of the iconic gallus or head frames are standing today. This collection of vintage imagery showcases the people, machinery, processes, and technology in the mines that comprised Butte Hill.
