• I believe that this is taken from the northeast side of Calumet Pond. There are maps in the Archives' collections that indicate this bridge or causeway went across the middle of Calumet Pond. The buildings in the background are probably portions of the former Calumet & Hecla Mining Company's waterworks and original Calumet mill. The C&H waterworks were teh source for the name of Waterworks Street in Calumet. Behind the photographer would be the current road linking Centennial Heights to Red Jacket Shaft location.
