    Daly Mine in Park City...site of one of the worst mining disasters in US History. About 30 guys killed in a 1902 explosion. Got married (1.0 version) right next to the old mine site. My own marital disaster blew up a few years later. Current state reminds me of UW football.

    Old Bellingham Bay Brewery





    The 1906 San Francisco earthquake provided unexpected opportunities for the 3-B, as well as other northwest breweries.
    From the Puget Sound American of August 23, 1906:

    "$1,000,000 ORDER FOR BEER - Local Plant Will Be Enlarged to Meet California Demands.

    Orders for almost $1,000,000 worth of beer has led the Bellingham Bay Brewery to consider plans for $20,000 worth of improvements in its local plant. The cellar capacity, now about 150 barrels daily, will be doubled and the ice tanks also will be doubled in capacity. A story was recently added to the main building and the other addition will be built on the west side of the structure.

    The unusual orders were received in California when Manager Shupp went to San Francisco. The local plant, in common with the Seattle and Portland breweries, has grasped the opportunity presented for trade since the earthquake and these concerns now enjoy the bulk of the business. The British brewery trust, whose plants were destroyed, has determined to re-enter the field to compete with its northern rivals, and it has announced that it will spend $2,000,000 in constructing breweries.”


    The brewery's plans for the $20,000 expansion were completed, doubling its capacity to 100,000 barrels a year.

    With the loss of brewery production in San Francisco, Leopold Schmidt decided to establish his own brewery in that city. So, in late 1906 the Acme Brewing Company became the newest of Schmidt's breweries.
