Description

    Stereoview of Little Pittsburg Mine, Leadville, Colorado, circa 1880s. Very detailed view with a sign on the building in the foreground, reading "Little Pittsburg C.M. Co." Title in the image is "No. 49- The Little Pittsburg" with an elaborate back-mark of photographer Charles Weitfle of Central City, Colorado, with views of the medal awarded to Weitfle by the Colorado Industrial Association in 1878 for the "Best Collection of Photographic Views of Colorado Scenery." Back-mark describes Leadville as the "boss mining camp of the world, both as to wealth and population, having within two years acquired a population of over 28,000 and possessing the greatest and richest mines in the world."

    Leadville's famous Little Pittsburgh mine was associated with the legendary Horace Tabor, one of the most famous of the Colorado silver kings who made and lost a fortune from silver mines during Leadville's boom days in 1878.

    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.
