Archival photo of Bloomer Cut, once regarded as the eighth wonder of the world. Bloomer Cut was overwhelmingly constructed by Chinese Railroad Workers. It was opened for use in 1865, and remains in use today. A barely-marked trail behind suburban houses in Auburn California leads through grassland down to the tracks.
