La Mina, a perfect name for a bar in a mining town, closed down many years ago.

The intricate metalwork on the rail leading from a church to the struggling but faithful community surrounding it.



Superior, Arizona, is a most interesting former mining town. There are endless opportunities to photograph unique things, and as a bonus, the people there are really nice! This is a recently uncovered advertisement on the side of an old building.
