Just Up from Underground – 1914


Just up from underground, Hancock Mine, Hancock, Mich.  A-23174

Post marked Trimountain, Mich.  Aug. 5, 1914.  Addressed to Mrs. E. L. [Effie Lee] Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave, Detroit, Mich.

“Dear Friend, Expect to go camping in a week or so.  Having a fine time.  Went to town Sat. Eve and only 50 – 75 people on the street.  Cool weather in Trimountain.  Leading a simple life of country maiden.  3-4 glasses of milk daily.  F.”

It appears this is from Florence Koontz, Effie’s future daughter in law.  It also is a good image of the Copper Mining industry in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the early Twentieth Century.
