Kennedy Tailings Dam - Construction

Sent by Ed Arata

The Argonaut Mine tailings dam was discussed and aspects of its construction. Here are photos of the construction of the Kennedy tailings dam in the same time period. These photos were probably taken by my grand-father Elbridge Post, who was the master mechanic at the Kennedy at this time; he supervised construction of the Kennedy tailing wheels. These photos were in an envelope in a "shoe-box" at my mom's house.
