Todays News and Views brings us back to 1943 – a favorite year of mine apparently. This particular issue’s front page story deals with the sinking of the Allouez No.3 shaft, also know as the Allouez-Douglass shaft.

In addition to the Allouez, the newsletter also touches on the construction of the Quincy Reclamation Plant’s dredge, which is now sunk in the middle of Torch Lake.
