Gold rush buildings

Gold rush buildings, originally uploaded by mhall209.

We are fortunate to live in an area that has a lot of history attached to it. During the 1850's this area experienced a huge population growth when gold was discovered. People came from all over the world because they had heard you could jst pick gold up out of the creeks. There was a lot of gold in the area free for the taking. There are still a number of relics of that era still here. These buildings are not unusuall in the area. This is an image of some buildings on a back road in Jackson, California. My wife and I often go for walks in this area, and this was a good opportunity to try out the film camera my brother loaned me.
