Debris strewn through downtown Sandon following washout, June 1933. The washout was caused by a slide of debris from the Silversmith Mine that emptied into Carpenter Creek via Sandon Creek, plugging the flume containing Carpenter Creek through downtown Sandon underneath Main Street and leaving debris strewn throughout the town. Canadian Pacific Railway track covered at centre.
