Cobalt - Construction cont'd

Workers in the mines and on the construction sites at the turn of the 20th century were a hardy bunch who made do with what they had. Much of their clothing and household goods would have been ordered from the Eaton's Mail Order News advertisements in the Cobalt Daily Nugget.
