Photographer's Note

Former iron mines at Anglas lake (2068m).
Extraction of iron ore and silver quartz started in 1881. Wagons were carried down to Gourette with cables.
Around 100 minors worked there (except during winter) till 1916 when the mine closed.
Ruins of the installation and living stone buildings are still there, mining equipments also.
