This occupational view shows the shaft house, smelter and tailing pile at a zinc and lead mining Joplin, MO. At one time Joplin was the center of zinc and lead mining in the United States. The back of the view elaborates on the mining process and describes what you see in the view. This view is in very good vintage condition with just a few very minor flaws. There is a small crease/wrinkle at the end of the text on the right side of the back of the card and the corners are slightly bumped or rubbed. These flaws in no way distract and this is really a nice, crisp, clean view.
I will be happy to combine purchases to save on shipping costs. International orders are always welcome.
