DescriptionTonopah, Nevada: Two Photographs. The first features a parade on Main Street during an Independence Day celebration ca. 1904 (9" x 3.5" photograph affixed to a 9" x 6" board). In the parade, the Tonopah band marches alongside wagons and men on horseback. Several identified businesses are noted, most decked out in patriotic bunting. Independence Day was the most important day of the year in western mining camps.
The second photograph features a panoramic view of Tonopah (13.25" x 5.5" photograph affixed to a 14.5" x 6.75" board). This wonderful and very early view of the camp includes Main Street and the mines on Mt. Oddie. Because of the lack of structures on Main Street, the image was probably taken in early 1903. Mines in the background include the Desert Queen, Valley View, North Star Silvertop, and the Tonopah-Belmont. This is one of the best Nevada mining-town views known. Debossed on the board below the photograph, "Tonopah Studio / E. W. Smith / Tonopah, Nev." Some wear occurs around the edges of the board; the upper left corner has been removed. Some scratches exposing white on the photograph.
