A drawing of aerial tramways going to the De Soto and Blue Bell mines in Yavapai County, as drawn by Amy Ashley. The De Soto Mine and the Blue Bell Mine were the two locations where the Bleichert system aerial tramways were built in the Bradshaw Mountains. These tramways would carry buckets and supplies. By 1931 the De Soto Mine had stopped operating and by 1932 the Blue Bell Mine deteriorated and was disassembled in 1932. Today little evidence of these tramways exists.
