Early days at Bagdad Mine circa 1907. Mr. H. A. Giscendofer 1st Engineer at Bagdad sitting on right. The Bagdad Mine is in the Eureka district, in western Yavapai County, Arizona and 27 miles by road from Hillside, a station on the BNSF Railway's Phoenix Subdivision. Bagdad camp is on Copper Creek, a few miles upstream from its junction with Burro Creek, at an altitute of about 3,200 feet. The Bagdad claims were discovered in 1882, but it was not until 1906 that they were worked with small success by the Girollx Syndicate. This company is one of a succession of owners/operators of the mining property. This photo is from the Helen & John Lawler Collection.
