DescriptionRare Photograph of The U. S. Grand Jury of Socorro, New Mexico Territory, ca. 1880s. In the early 1880s, Socorro was the center of a frenetic mining boom, with thousands of silver and lead ore deposits located in and about the area. The town was incorporated in 1884, and became a center of commerce and agriculture, as well. Here we see a group of men identified as the "U.S. Grand Jury" standing on the steps of the courthouse. Slightly underdeveloped, but a fine image, nevertheless.
Photograph has been cut from an old photo album, and features portions of two images glued to the other side of the page, each showing parlor scenes.
Condition: Very good-fine, has a small tear at extreme lower right corner.
Fees, Shipping, and Handling Description: Flat Material, Small (view shipping information)
