The smelter, on the slag dump looking East at the power house, and the smokestack. Note the center plant in front of the smokestack. The overhead cables supplied electricity. The slag engines were evidently motorized, not steam mules as in other smelters. R.M. Stein Collection.

For about 29 months, the 365-foot smokestack did the job for which it was intended, but financial hard times forced the company to close in 1920. The short 85-foot stack beside the tall one was razed in the late 1920’s to provide brick for at least a couple of homes in Salida. Frank Thomson Collection.

Wet mortar, a trowel and unfinished brick-work in the foreground show the last stage of construction November 14, 1917. Southwest of the new stack is the old stack continuing to spew smoke over the valley. It was torn down a short time after the new smokestack was completed. The view from 365 feet up gives a good idea of the layout of D&RG and company rails. Frank Thomson Collection.
