This blue enameled-metal sign with white letters, approx 16x12-inches, gives the station signals for the skip that would carry men, equipment, and possibly ore up and down the shaft of the Alaska-Juneau Gold Mine three miles from Juneau, Alaska. At one time, this mine was one of the world's largest gold mines. It's 30-stamp mill was driven by electricity generated by a hydroelectric plant they built on Gold Creek.
