JIMTOWN, CREEDE MINING DISTRICT, AFTER FIRE, 1892

 

Cabinet card photograph taken by E. F. Hilton and mounted on Hilton’s Alamosa, Colorado studio card.  Compared with the Hilton photograph of the same year (Item # 2) Jimtown appears to have been almost totally consumed by the June 5, 1892 fire.  As was usual with Colorado mining camps, after suffering a devastating conflagration the camp was rebuilt in brick and stone.  Photograph dimensions: 7-1/2 inches by 4-1/2 inches.  Some water-staining in upper right-hand area (mostly in monotone sky); otherwise very strong tones and contrasts.  One small hole punched in each corner of the mount.

DEATH OF “BOB” FORD, Creede. Colorado 1892

 

 

Original cabinet card photograph, #109, “Removing the body,” attributed to photographer Charles H. Goodman.  On June 5, 1892, a fire destroyed a good portion of the Creede mining camp.  Undeterred, owners returned went back into business within days, including Bob Ford with his saloon and dance hall.  At 3:50 p.m. on June 8, 1892, Joe Duval gave Edward O’Kelly a shotgun outside Ford’s establishment.  Ford was in the process of raising funds to bury one of his dance hall girls, Nellie Russell, who had taken a morphine overdose.  O’Kelly followed Ford to the back of the tent saloon, and as Ford turned around O’Kelly fired both barrels into Ford’s face from a distance of five feet.  O’Kelly was immediately arrested by Deputy Sheriff Plunket of Rio Grande County, Colorado.  Ford was buried on June 11, 1892.  Cabinet card image dimensions: 7-3/4 inches by 4-3/4 inches.  Condition: very good; hole-punch near each corner; light damp-staining near edges; good tones and contrasts.
