Description The corral and barn stood above the mine and washer, opposite the "Little Mine That Didn't Coke," the dump of which is off to the right. Dump in the background is that of No. 4 W.H. Emmet, the stable boss, had his living quarters in the lean-to on the side of the barn. There with his bed and stove and the medicines with which he doctored the horses and mules, he maintained a darkroom where he pursued his photographic hobby to which can be credited many of the pictures remaining of the old town and activity. Water was piped to the cement water trough in front of the lean-to. From this water system people who lived above the barn secured their water and carried it to their houses.
