    OURAY, COLORADO STREET SCENE BY W.H. JACKSON - BOUDOIR CARD - ca. 1885-95. This is a fine street scene of Ouray, Colorado and the Beaumont Hotel from W.H. Jackson. Several signs can be read, and much detail seen of this early Western town. The balance of this image is excellent and the contrast and tonality of the image are very good, minor fading and spotting is evident to the left above the skyline, and the top right corner has been bumped. The card measures 7"x 4.5", and is marked by Jackson on the back from the Denver Studio. There is also a nice period script ink notation, "Hotel where your father and I stopped when we went to Ouray - we were married".

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
