Description Dredge #2 (Sumpter Valley) . Built 1915. The booms at left side of image 2 would indicate that this photo was taken during the last phase of construction in 1915.

Brooks Hawley note: "Dredge #2 of the Powder River Gold Dredging Co. Period of activity 1915-1923. This dredge went upstream past Sumpter toward Bourne. Bob Ingle, a sheep rancher, had it at the last but lost [money] on it. This dredge was next moved to Cle Elum, Washington. It was almost identical to Dredge #1 but had smaller buckets."

There are two images attached to this record, since the whole negative could not be scanned at once. Each image has a little more than the other on either the right or left side.

Object ID 1981.1.5147
