    Imperial Size Photograph of "Deadwood Stagecoach" by Grabill, 1889. Printed on this oversized unmounted photograph "No. 2369. Deadwood Coach, the last official visit of Supreme Court Judges to Deadwood, and first legislative delegation for the New S. Dak, (South Dakota) all on road to Pierre, the Capital. Photo, and copyright by Graybill' 89." Oath ceremony, On October 15, 1889, all of the newly elected officers for the State of South Dakota met in Pierre to take the oath of office. However, there was no capitol building for the new officers because Pierre had just won the temporary capital site. The oath ceremony for the new officers was given at the Hughes County Courthouse in Pierre.

    In the foreground of this photograph there are tailings from a gold mine and you can also see the mine shaft. There are six horses pulling the stagecoach (mud-wagon) with Judges in their top hats and other delegates sitting top of coach. Measures approximately 10" x 8".

    Fine, unmounted, has a couple of light spots in image.
