Donna Wallace Kranyak
sent me these great photos of the Eastern mine,
and gave me permission to use them here.
The writing above, on the company envelope,
is her grandmother's who just happened to be
the owner, Herb Wallace's wife.
whose name was Jessie.
So that makes Donna the granddaughter of Herb obviously.

These show a bad blizzard at the mine, but year is unknown.

We can clearly see this mine was on the CNR tracks in these photos.

Thanks for the photos Donna

All are thumbnails, just click to open in a new window,
