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.
