    CARSON CITY, NEVADA MINE BOARDING HOUSE - LARGE FORMAT IMPERIAL CARD - ca. 1890. This is an impressive photograph measuring 14"x 11" overall of a Nevada mine boarding house and the miners who lived there. Scratched in the negative on the front is the notation - "Mine Boarding House - J.and.L.V Mg Co". The back is purple ink stamped, "From - Hawes Photographers - Carson City, Nevada - Negative". The card has some breaks around the outside edges, most of which run about 2" on the far right and bottom center left, however there is very little of the card missing. The image has good contrast but the shade obscures some of the faces as this was taken outdoors and most of the men wear hats. A great miner and Nevada-related Western photograph in a rare large format.
