More Rusty History from Oatman Arizona
Oatman Arizona is full of rusty relics that were abandoned by the Gold miners of days gone by. They are now tourist attractions.
What job function did this rusty old steam tractor perform during the Gold rush?
How much Gold did this safe hold in it's prime?
This old tractor is hooked up to a rusty water tank on a trailer. Check out the rusty rain water tanks on the hill in the background. Water was very important to Gold mining.
These "wild" donkeys are descendants of the pack animals used by the miners. They roam the streets and don't care much about the "No Trespassing" signs.
This dramatic face of an old vehicle seems to make a historic statement of hard work.
For great pictures and a good time, I recommend a nostalgic trip down old Route 66 to Oatman Arizona.
