Title: Small collection of photographs and photographic negatives of the property of the Pacific Milling Company in Nevada Author: Place: Nevada Publisher: Date: c.1918 Description: Comprises approximately 33 silver photographs, including some duplicates, and approximately 55 photographic negatives. Approx. 8.5x14 cm. (3½x5½"). About half of the negatives housed in in a clothbound "Eastman Negative Album." Original photographs of the mining and milling operations the Pacific Milling Company and its associate companies the Pacific Tungsten Company, the Mill City Tungsten Mining Company, and the Mill City Development Company. The Pacific Tungsten Company was organized in March of 1918 by W.J. Loring, aiming to capitalize on the demand for the metal for armaments during the first world war. The company progressed in its evolving corporate identities, as evidenced by the photographs in the collection, before being stymied by the declaration of peace in 1918, when it was closed and the properties sold off to creditors. Some of the photographs with rubberstamps of the Pacific Milling Co. or W.J. Loring on the reverse, a few with penciled dates. Lot Amendments Condition: Very good condition. Item number: 241478
