Some of you may have noticed a great deal of changes here on CCE starting last week. What was once a trilogy of sites, has now been concentrated into a new and enhanced Copper Country Explorer. As part of that move, CCE now offers its own Heritage Guide and Scrapbook sections for your perusal. While Heritage Guide is really just old KFG with a new look and purpose, the new Scrapbook section is a new beast entirely. It takes what CCE’s very own CC Scrapbook series did and expands on it greatly. At Scrapbook you’ll find a collection of photos, maps, and drawings that I have come across during the years. Most of these are generously provided by readers of this site, while others are items I have acquired myself over these last five years of exploration and research. The point is to provide a freely accessible archives, organized by subjects, formats, dates, and contributors. A living history of the Copper Country and the great empire that once called this place home.
Towards that end, Fridays at CCE will forever more be known as Scrapbook Fridays. This day will be reserved to post links to the new archival materials I have added to scrapbook. Each week will be a little different, and as long as I continue to receive materials to publish, the series will continue to exist.
We start today with a revisit to an old classic – C&H News and Views. These old C&H company newsletters were graciously provided to scrapbook by long time reader and CC explorer Gordy Schmitt (thanks again Gordy). Today’s episode hails from February of 1945.
