These images are from Scott Brady's Mining Artifact Collection. Scott died in 2005 and the website was disabled in August 2006. These images were "SAVED" before the website went down. Scott's was one of the first sites that I found when I first started collecting. Scott was the only one that wrote to me thanking me for looking at the site. I had signed the guest register and left my e-mail address. Scott was a shy person who had grown up around Old Hangtown (Placerville, CA). He built a very nice website to share his collection, with a great deal of effort & time. The lamps range from the very common Auto-Lite to the Rare Copper Queen Handlamp. The lamps have now gone to other collections, but the images are here for you to enjoy and learn from.
