Postcard from Mesabi Open Pit Iron Mine in Virginia

This undated postcard shows scenes from the Mesabi Iron Range, the largest of four iron ranges in northeast Minnesota. The card uses a spelling more often associated with a roadway in Duluth — Mesaba Avenue.

The text on the back of the card reads:

View showing shovels and locomotive pushing thirty yard air-dump cars. Approximate depth to lowest elevation, three hundred feet from surface.
