Water wheels were commonplace to the gold mining regions, providing power for mining and milling operations. Powered by water the wheel was attached to a series of belts and gears which turned the machinery to crush the ores. This water wheel was installed around 1902 by the Angels Mining Company. This wheel is set up to operate a stamp mill. The undated photograph above shows this same water wheel as it was operating sometime in the early 20th century.
