Abandoned and rotting today, the old Gold King mine above Ophir, in southwest Colorado, had the distinction in 1891 of being America's first customer for "long-distance" alternating electric current. In the late 1880s, L.L. Nunn and George Westinghouse built the Ames electric generating plant near Lizard Head Pass. The Gold King, one of the richest mines in the West, was 2 and a half miles up the steep slope -- a long way for low voltage current to travel in those days. Parts for the generator were shipped in from the East. No one was sure the new-fangled outfit would work, and even the investors thought they had a pretty good chance of losing their money.....Photo measures 7.75 x 10.25inches. Photo is dated 10-07-1962.

If you do not receive an "order shipped" email from us by the close of the second business day from submitting payment, please e-mail us via messaging. Q: How do you make sure my photograph arrives safely?
A: We package each order between two cross-corrugated pieces of cardboard to ensure that the package is as difficult to bend as possible. We then wrap each order in a plastic sheet to help protect against moisture. We want you to rest assured that we take every precaution to ensure that the photograph you receive will be in the same condition in your care as it was in ours.
