Description:
Postcard shows asbestos mine in Lowell during the winter. Claire Leonard (WQ2007) writes on 2007-01-04: This image shows a small asbestos mine amid a winter landscape. The mine consists of a jumble of buildings in the center of the image. What appears to be a dirt road leads form the left of the image to the mine, where an area is cleared of snow. What looks to be some equipment is on the edge of the cleared area. The main structure of the mine is a white-painted houselike structure, set into the ground or in a hollow. A long, thin, black chimney protrudes from the house into the sky, along with another long pole. On the side of the structure facing the viewer is a squat and squarish black structure. At its base are piles of what look to be firewood. Behind the houselike structure is a wall built of lumber that has a rectangular darker portion, which may be the entrance to a shaft. To the left of the houselike structure is a large pile of earth. The surrounding landscape is gently hilly and mostly bare. Small conifers dot the landscape. A single deciduous tree stands on a bare spot in the snow near the foreground. The snow on the ground is somewhat thin and patchy, indicating that it may be late winter or early spring. Large mountains are visible in the background that appear to be forested with deciduous trees. On the far right of the nearest mountain is a cleared area, perhaps a field.
