Place:

Date:
circa 1880
Summary:
Album of cyanotype photographs of mills, mines and mining equipment, and the shipping of iron ore, mostly in Michigan.
Scope and Contents:
The collection is an album of cyanotype photographs depicting mills, mines and mining equipment, and the shipping of iron ore. The photographs are captioned and indicate that the images were mostly taken in cities in Michigan, including Calumet, Marquette, Franklin, Sault Ste. Marie, and Hancock. Some images of Buffalo and Cleveland are also included. The photographs are arranged by the cities in which they were taken.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged in one series.

Series 1, Cyanotype Album, circa 1880
Biographical / Historical:
The album is inscribed, "To Henry Davis from Frank Klepetko." Klepetko was a metallurgical engineer who was an authority in copper smelting and refining. Born in Czechoslovakia in 1856, he emigrated to Cleveland, Ohoi in 1867, and obtained his degree of Engineer of Mines at Columbia University in 1880. Though it is unclear whether Klepetko was the photographer of the images in the album, the album was given to Henry C. Davis in 1880. Davis had been made president of a new Conglomerate Mining Company, originally formed on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in 1863.
