The abandoned site of the community of Anyox is located along Observatory Inlet about 60 kilometers south of Stewart, British Columbia. A large copper mine and smelter
supported a population of some 3,000 people by 1914, but in 1935 the mine was closed due to low copper prices and high costs of production.
These aerial photos were taken from my plane in 1985.
The photo below shows the working-class residental area of Anyox in its heyday.
The Niho Land & Cattle Company had a couple of excellent photos of the ruins from the water (they had a piece of land across the bay for sale as of Dec/2002). The photos are still posted
