Deep inside the abandoned Eagle Gold Mine in Julian, California. This is a view of the foreman's desk, the only "administrative" area inside the mine.

There were no lamps like you see here when this mine was operational. This lamp was meant to represent the approximate amount of light the foreman had available via candlelight.

I really love this viewing angle of this old antique desk. All of the items are so well preserved and dust has been allowed to collect on them for years. The old water jug and lunch pail really have a good coating going.
