My great grandfather, a mining engineer, built the stamp mill at the Jamison Mine in Johnsville, CA, where the photo was taken.
Grandma Louise and her twin delivered the gold bars, covered with a blanket, in a horse and buggy to the shipper. The gold was then shipped to Wells Fargo in SF. Their father rationalized that robbers would not suspect girls of 12 had gold in their buggy.
