Rare post-1899 photo

This rare photo of Bodie, taken from the north at Milk Ranch Canyon facing South, shows a different Bodie than most people are familiar with seeing. Looking at the full-size photo you get to see the huge cyanide-leaching ponds that once laid East of Main St. and the Bodie Creek (also visible in the photo.) And the yellow callouts show a newly rebuilt Standard Mill and the Bon Ton Lodging House (later the School), and right behind the Bon Ton is the rarely seen Catholic Church.
