Pioneer B Mine, Ely, Minnesota, 1940s Postcard Reproduction
Nice historic image of the Pioneer B Mine in Ely, Minnesota, from the 1940s. The Pioneer Mine was an underground iron mine in Ely, Minnesota, United States, in operation from 1889 to 1967. It is one of only two such mines on the Vermilion Range whose above-ground structures are still standing, the other being the Soudan Mine. The Pioneer Mine Buildings and "A" Headframe were listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district in 1978 for their state-level significance in the themes of engineering and industry.
A bit of history, fantastic for dropping friends or family a note the old-fashioned way, and makes a great gift! This is a reproduction of the original 1909 postcard. Postcard image from LakesnWoods.com.
