    Great Silver Print Boudoir Cabinet of the Koehler Saloon in Koehler, New Mexico. Koehler was a coal-mining town that began in 1906 and was named for Henry Koehler, president of the board of the American Brewing Company of St. Louis and the St. Louis, Rock Mountain and Pacific Company, which mined coal in Koehler and owned the town. The demand for coal by railroads was high, and by 1907 Koehler had 1,000 residents. But like so many other coal towns, its existence was precarious. Koehler became a ghost town in 1924 when railroads converted to diesel fuel to power locomotives and the mines were closed. This great photo features the interior of the Koehler Saloon, with its 60-foot long bar, behind which several men stand. Image measures 6.75" x 4.5" and is affixed to a 10" x 8" brown mount; photographer unknown. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Some staining and a few creases to mount; moderate wear to corners and edges. Fine.
