Now in our 15th year of this daily journey through the U.P., this week's Shoebox Memory includes a video documentary introduced by the late Jack Foster. As you may know, Jack helped us kick-off the Pasty Cam back in '98, as he took me on a whirlwind tour around the Copper Country, pointing out places and stories that he thought Pasty Cam visitors would be interested in seeing.

We see Jack in the opening minute and a half of From Ore to Finished Product, a 48 minute film produced by Calumet and Hecla. Thanks to Kraig Mahrley for pointing out this interesting glimpse of Copper Country History.

Enjoy the show! and have a good week :o)

I always love these old mining pictures. My Dad and several relatives worked in the mines in the 50's and 60's and they enjoy them too.

Looks like a dirty job, but guess somebody had to do it. Once again, an example of MEN doing their work. God bless 'em!

Any idea when this was made. Was it originally made in black and white and colorized?

Wish I could have sat at Jack's feet while he was still alive to hear stories of the C&H. Thanks for the memory. The film was very good.
