Photograph of Sunshine Mine, 1921 - en anglais seulement

This is a black and white photograph of Sunshine Mine, 1921. The view is of the coal mine buildings, such as the tipple. The background shows a vast mountainous landscape.

This photo is part of the Butti family collection. Henry Butti  was born in Italy but immigrated to Canada with his family in 1917. Like his father, Peter Butti, Henry worked in the mines; however, the Buttis did not work at this specific mine.

When WWII broke out, Henry and his wife, Myra, were designated as enemy aliens and ordered to report monthly to the RCMP.
