GILPIN COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT, in Black Hawk, Colorado, 1895
GILPIN COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT AT FUNERAL OF JOSEPH RICHARDS, Member of Alert Hose Company No. 2, Who met his death in Gregory Bobtail Mine, June 17th 1895.
Photographer: A. M. Thomas, Central City, Colorado
Image dimensions: 8-7/8 inches by 7-3/8 inches
On original mount.
Mount has been cut down, most likely for an 1890s framing. Chipped upper left-hand corner and chipped lower left-hand corner. Otherwise very good condition.
The superb tones and contrasts of this photograph, as well as the subject matter, compensates for the bit of damage and the “cut-down” mount. Just an excellent photograph.
Black Hawk, Gilpin County, Colorado, 1895.
