Cabinet card photo: Gilpin County Fire Departments at funeral 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.
