    [Nevada Mining]. Panoramic Photograph of Tonopah, NV. This wonderful and very early view of the camp includes Main Street and the mines on Mt. Oddie. Because of the lack of structures on Main Street, the image was probably taken in early 1903. Mines in the background include the Desert Queen, Valley View, North Star Silvertop, and the Tonopah-Belmont. This is one of the best Nevada mining-town views known. Debossed on the board below the photograph: "Tonopah Studio / E. W. Smith / Tonopah, Nev." Photograph measures 13.25" x 5.5" and is mounted on a 14.5" x 6.75" board. Some wear occurs around the edges of the board; the upper left corner has been removed. Some scratches exposing white on the photograph. Light soiling present on upper left quadrant of photograph; chipping on lower left corner and left edge of photograph border.
