Old Jeans – Relics

Two pair of old jeans, relics for sure, hanging on nails in an old building at Vulture Mine near Wickenburg, AZ.  Can you imagine the stories they could tell?

The mine was discovered in 1863 and was producing ore until WWII, although at much lower  level, and was officially shut down in 1942.  At one time the town had a population of 5,000, but quickly became a ghost town once the mine closed.

Some say the ghost town is haunted and it is quite popular among ghost town enthusiasts.

    Well those poor jeans are so worn and tattered how could they not be relics? Well done! And yes, hearing a story or two about who wore them, where and when would definitely be interesting!
