    Tombstone, Arizona: Photograph of Cochise County Courthouse. Photograph, circa 1901-1904, a 6.5" x 4.75" albumen print on a 9" x 7" mount. The Cochise County Courthouse was built in 1882 and housed county offices, courtrooms, and a jail. The courthouse closed in 1931. Standing outside the building are, from left to right, Jack Mathias, Cochise County Jailer; C.R. Bostwick, Probate Judge; Ed Land, District Attorney; William Hattich, Editor of the Tombstone Prospector and Epitaph; Hugh Conlon, Under Sheriff; M.D. Scribner, County Treasurer; Del Lewis, County Sheriff. Standing in the front are, front left, A.H. Emanuel, Clerk of District Court and former Mayor of Tombstone from 1896-1900; and front right, Thomas R. York, Chairman of the Cochise County Board of Supervisors. The mount is chipped and worn in appearance, with a slight water stain on the bottom right hand side and eight pinholes on the edges and the middle of the top and bottom edges. A small piece (less than 5mm) is missing from the photograph on the upper left hand corner, which does not detract from the clear image.
