    The Most Important Collection of Nevada Photographs to Come to Market in Many Years

    [Nevada Mining Towns] Rare 1908 Photograph Album of the Lodi Mines Company, Lodi, Nevada. Twenty-one original photographs measuring 5.5" x 3.25" and four panoramic images measuring 11.5" x 3.25", mounted in a period album measuring 8" x 6". This photograph album was produced by the Lodi Mines Company and was presumably given to potential investors to stimulate interest in company's venture. The images were taken between November 14th and 18th, 1908. The photographs are mounted one per page and each is accompanied by a liberal typescript caption. This album may well represent the most important collection of Nevada photographs to come to market in many years and indeed may be the only known images of this obscure mining camp located in northwest Nye County. In 1910 the camp changed its name to Lodivale and opened a post office that operated for about thirteen months, but beyond that, little is known. This is an extremely important collection of photographs that allows the opportunity to see a previously unrecorded area of Nevada. Fine condition.
