Silversmith Mine mill complex, Sandon, 1933, with washed out Nakusp & Slocan (Canadian Pacific) Railway siding line and flood debris at bottom. The washout was caused by a slide of debris from the Silversmith Mine that emptied into Sandon Creek in 1933. The bank underneath the filter house, undermined at lower right, was refilled and the railway bridge rebuilt.
