Timber and debris strewn along path of avalanche at Silversmith Mine, Sandon, March 1928. Notes from Hal Wright: 'House (upper right) is the Ivanhoe mill manager's house. This home survived long after Ivanhoe closed. It spanned the Silversmith, Carnegie and Silvana years. It became a new assay office during the Silvana, Dickenson, and Treminco years.'
