Mining Men & A Painter's Den

Old photos will offer the last fair deal you'll ever see. For just a moment of your time, you'll receive a treasure chest of nostalgic emotions worth more than their weight in gold.

Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

Here I am without my full, thick beard. 355 patents I held, including those boom sticks you feared. At the top of your field, you strive to be. Achieve this you might and earn a gold-coined portrait of me. My name etched on the award, it shall be. Oh, by the way, my birthday's today, born in 1833.

Blast from the past

Going for gold

The second half of the 19th century brought thousands of people to the western coast of North America. Even before the Klondike Gold Rush in Canada, people could be found panning through rivers in hopes of striking riches.
