|Pop Ups on our web site? Nope. None. Nada. Zilch...|
Note: Some current Blocker programs
are so overzealous that they mistake the above navigational bar's coding
as a pop up. All the above coding does is change the color of each
navigational block and add in an arrow -- this is called a "rollover"
NOT a "pop up". There is no additional coding and there are no
additional ads. This problem does not happen on a Macintosh. However, MicroSoft
is aware of the problem and claims that it'll be fixed in their next update.
So surf our site with peace of mind.
we are and what we do...
Replicas Mercantile's Store is currently OFF-LINE as we are going through
some major changes! We
are now partnering with the Eastern
Utah Tourism & History Association to
provide on-line merchandise for this non-profit organization. The Eastern Utah Tourism & History Association is also taking over the operation of Heritage Week, the widely popular
Haunted History Tours as well as other special events and tours within Helper
and Carbon County, Utah! Keep checking
back here as things will be drastically changing in the next couple of months.
You can also find additional information about these changes on destinationhelper.com in their "Museum Expansion Update: The Murder of
the Golden Goose" section. Previously,
monies raised for the Western Mining & Railroad Museum did not go for
their intended purposes, but instead disappeared into the black hole of
Helper City Corporation's General Fund!
If you still want to buy copies of photos or SueAnn
Martell's books or anything else, then
feel free to email Gofer and we can still sell them to you directly. Our store will return along with the grand opening of
the Eastern Utah Tourism
& History Association's offices, we will have
a larger selection of historical photos to offer as well as more books and
other merchandise like DVDs, custom mugs and t-shirts based on the many
requests that we have received!
Image Replicas Mercantile was a joint effort
between the Western Mining
& Railroad Museum and Teply Graphic Arts & Publishing, LLC to create an outlet
that supports the museum. Proceeds raised through Image Replicas Mercantile
goes towards its award winning annual Heritage Week celebration.
Teply Graphic Arts & Publishing, LLC already provides restorations
and high quality photos for resale to museums produced to the Smithsonian
Institution & Library of Congress Digitization Standards using hundred
year archival inks on heavy weight photo paper.
All reproductions are taken from actual historical
photos -- usually from Utah. Watch for additional historical photos to be
added from other areas of the West. In addition, our merchandise line will
expand to include more items like DVDs, T-shirts and more books.
You may ask what is so special about Helper, Utah and
the Western Mining & Railroad Museum? Well, for starters -- we've been
chosen by True West Magazine
as a top western town for the last two years! Secondly, the museum was
a regional repository -- with a collection of over 5,000 historic photos
and thousands of archive collections dating from the 1880s through modern
day. And finally, in some ways we haven't left the Old West's way of doing
stuff -- our last honest celebrity/politician was Butch Cassidy!
You may also ask where the photos for Image Replicas
Mercantile comes from... they come from our privately purchased collections,
photos left by family and friends and some are public domain historical
photographs. Contrary to what the current Helper City Government claims,
Helper City doesn't own everything through "imminent domain"!
Some of our photos are unique digitally restored one-of-a-kinds only available
here at Image Replicas Mercantile and through the forthcoming Eastern Utah
Tourism & History Association.
Feel free to browse through our wide collection of historic photographs and merchandise.
New photos will be added monthly and others will be available for only a
short time. We have everything from coal mining and mining camps to railroads,
outlaws, disasters and life in Eastern Utah. If you don't see what you are
looking for, let us know. We can search through our collections to find
what you need.
