Nelson, B.C. Wadds Bros. 1902. Mounted Photograph. A wonderful image capturing the latest machinery being used in a Mine Concentrator in Ymir, British Columbia.

Photo measures 7.75 x 9.5 inches wide and is mounted onto a stamped photographer's card (Wadds Bros. / Vancouver and Nelson BC) measuring 12 x 14.25 inches wide. Photo is about Fine, mount w. pin holes, edge bumps, minor scratches and stains, verso with "Ymir, B.C. / 1902" and the initials "G.H.B." in black fountain pen ink. At Least Very Good. Item #4657
