The town of Bodie in California was once a thriving gold mining town. At its peak, the population numbered 10,000. Today it is a fascinating remnant of an earlier time. It is one of my favorite locations for black & white film photography.

Tesla's original transformer in the Standard Mill.

Electricity was brought to the Standard Stamp mill in November 1892. The power had to be delivered from a hydro electric power plant some 13 miles away. Long distance electrical delivery was a new concept for the world. The power lines to Bodie were installed in a straight line route. This was done because it was not known at the time if electricity would be able to round turns on the way to Bodie!
