Archival Photos from the Star Phoenix

Archival Photographs of Uranium City from the Star Phoenix, released last fall. Curiously, many of these, maybe a third, are actually of Gunnar Mines, and one appears to be of the Lorado mill. Another caption, below the Gunnar headframe, reads “A grain elevator in disrepair in Uranium City”.

Seems to be from the early ’80s, during and after the mine shutdown, when the town was first being shut down. Spectacular photographs nonetheless:
