With a contemporary annotation in pencil on the verso reading "Virginia City - Nevada/ Looking down C. St/ Toward International/ Hotel on left". A superb photograph, visually rich with detail. Of particular note are the telephone poles stretching down the length of C Street and the Bell System sign attached to the pole in the left foreground. Well dressed men and women, a small terrier, and horse and buggy can easily be seen. Some soiling to the mat, else sharp and in excellent condition. Accompanied by several photocopies of contemporary photographs of the same general scene taken from different angles and included to verify the location.
