Miners pose with lunch pails in hand on a pile of "poor rock" (waste rock) outside of the Tamarack mineshaft. In the background is the Tamarack #5 Shaft-Rockhouse. This mine was one of the most productive mines in w:Copper Country. The men are carrying lunch pails, but some have not yet changed their street clothes for work clothes (or perhaps have already changed to go home, depending on whether they are going to work or going home from work).
