Once Mighty

A rugged old piece of mining machinery is now put "out to pasture" for all to admire on the grounds of the Quincy Mine Steam Hoist in Hancock, part of Michigan's historic Copper Country. This background (certainly more abstract than legible) consists of my paraphrasing of some literature about this site's famous No. 2 copper mining shaft, which back in the 1880s produced 20 percent of the world's copper.
