Photo identification provided by Chris T. Higgins, California Division of Mines and Geology. Photograph shows view eastward across Sulphur Creek Valley, Colusa County. The village of Sulphur Creek is on the right, the surface facilities of the Manzanita Mine (gold and mercury) on the left. In the center, the two light colored dumps on the hillside are probably part of the Empire Mine (mercury) [Wide Awake Mine?]. The creek in the foreground is Sulphur Creek. Today, the creek flows diagonally across the flat area on the left half of the photograph.
