Sundays in my City is hosted by Unknown Mami. Drop by and check out many different cities from around the world.
I have to admit I cheated a bit today. I wasn't in my city. I went to The World Museum of Mining in Butte. While there, we were able to tour an old fashioned mining town. And we were also able to see an underground mining exhibit. Unfortunately, we missed out on the actual tour of the mine, but there's always next time.
One of the observations my husband made today involved the crafsmanship of many of the pieces in the mining town exhibit. We found ourselves wondering whatever happened to craftsmanship? I would like to see it return myself. Below are two of my favorite pieces, one is a door plate and the other is a door knob. The detail in the engravings is amazing.
