Angels Camp in Calaveras County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
This whim, patented in 1888, was built entirely of iron and steel, mounted on a heavy base plate, so that it was net effected by cold or heat. Both hoisting and lowering was regulated by one lever; the operation so simple that it could be handled by any inexperienced person. This whim is from the Eagle Mine in Copperopolis.
Erected by Angels Camp Museum.
