The lead mining industry once thrived in parts of Missouri. You can visit St. Joe's Mines State Historic Site to get a glimpse of the buildings and machinery from the mines. This was an old engine. I loved the patina from the rust, the layers of paint, and the broken glass. The closing of the mines shattered communities.
