Great mining town newspaper...

Item # 563681

January 1, 1898

MOTHER LODE MAGNET, Jamestown, California, 1898  This has to be one of the best titles for a mining town to be had. Jamestown figured prominently in two gold rush eras, the first from 1848 to the early 1850's during the great rush precipitated by the gold at Sutter's Mill, and then again in the latter part of the 19th century when new methods were available to extract gold from the huge quartz deposits. It was in 1898 when the first steam railroad came to the area. Today they have a tourism-based economy for the 3000+ residents.
Complete in 4 pages, folio size, even age toning and a bit irregular at the spine. It should be handled carefully.  The photo shown is representative of the look and condition of the issue you will receive, but actual dates will vary in 1898.
