Iron Mountain city workers "boxing in" the mine creek on West Hughitt Street

Northwest Corner of Carpenter Avenue and West Hughitt Street, Iron Mountain, June, 1891: Workmen were boxing in the mine creek which ran along the side of Iron Mountain’s West Hughitt Street from Merritt Avenue west in mid-June 1891 to “prevent children from throwing debris into the water,” according to The Iron Range. The camera faces east, and this unidentified city crew was working at the northwest corner of Carpenter Avenue and Hughitt Street. Buildings on the south side of the street are visible behind the workers.
