    Description

    Imperial Size Birdseye View Photograph of "Gayville & Black Pail Gulch, South Dakota," 1890s. Thanks to General George Custer's expedition to this northwestern section, gold was discovered at Deadwood Gulch in the fall of 1876. The resulting gold rush in the spring of 1877 had the Black Hills area booming. The larger towns of Deadwood, Lead City, and Central City, plus the smaller settlements of Gayville, Spearfish, Galena, and Sturgis were full of prospectors and miners.

    This scarce image by H. R. Locke & Co. of Deadwood, South Dakota (Gilded), is a bird's-eye view of this very small Gold Rush mining town. Has a lot of wooden buildings and railroad tracks in town. This image has period ink on mount "Gayville & Black Pail Gulch, S. D.". Measures approximately 10" x 8".

    Condition:
    Very good-fine, cracked corner bottom right, also dirt on mount and image.
