Historic Gold Miner Pictures First Edition

To make myself a better prospector and learn from those who have gone before, I love to check out old pictures of the gold miners and prospectors who have been there and done that. It is interesting to see the way the old schoolers used to dress, the equipment they used, and overall demeanor…

I even use them to plan DiY equipment builds…like these rocker pics… when doing my Rocking Gold Cradle build over this past off-season.  I hope you enjoy these gold mining and prospecting pictures as much as I have!
