    D. W. Earl & Co. Forwarding and Commission Merchants, Tuscarora, Nevada Lumber Mill Cabinet Card, Circa 1889. Image size 3" x 5", mounted on studio card to an overall size of 3.75" x 6". D. W. Earl & Company manufactured and freighted supplies to various mining camps throughout Nevada. This image of their lumber operation is amazing for the detail contained including the stacks of cut lumber in the foreground, the steam-powered machinery in the background, a team of mules, and several employees including an African American child and man. On the verso, in script, each individual in the photo is identified, though largely illegible, it appears that one of the Earls, presumable one of the founders of the company is present in the image. A very early and important Nevada business and mining related image. Mount and image are soiled but the integrity of the image remains sound and is in very good condition.
