    Description

    Stunning Boudoir Card of Fort Huachuca, Arizona, circa 1890. Image features a dramatic bird's eye view of Fort Huachuca, built in 1877 for defense during the Indian wars of the southwest, and as a strategic position on the border between the United States and Mexico. The base was home to the Buffalo Soldiers of the U.S. 10th Cavalry Regiment for twenty years, and was used as a forward logistics and supply base during the Pancho Villa Expedition of 1916-1917. The 7" x 4.5" image is affixed to a slightly larger, dark cardboard mount with gilt edges. Photographer's imprint on verso with ink inscription reading: "10 Fort Huachuca." Photographed by George H. Rothrock, who operated a studio in Phoenix from 1882 to 1894. Very fine and desirable! From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition:
    An excellent image in exceptional condition.
