    Description

    Cabinet Card Photograph of Moet & Chandon Champagne Delivery, ca. 1913-1915. Town of Tonopah, Nevada grew up around the site at which Jim Butler discovered silver ore in 1900. By 1907, Tonopah had become a regular city, with modern hotels, electric and water companies, five banks, schools, and hundreds of other buildings.

    In 1913, the Tonopah Club opened its doors, and here we see a delivery man dropping off a huge shipment of champagne to the drinking and gambling establishment. Has penciled notation just below the Tonopah Club's window. "Florentine Art Studio, Herbert T. Shaw, Photographer. Tonopah, Nev." A terrific photo from the Nevada mining boom. Measures approximately 12" x 10".

    Condition:
    Very fine.
