Auburn was founded by miners who sought placer gold the old-fashioned way, with a shovel and a pan, but more sophisticated techniques were soon in play. One of the reasons Auburn died, though, was a lack of water; the creek that ran through town didn't deliver enough to supply operations like the one pictured here.
