Collection of Cabinet Photographs of a Colorado Logging Camp and Vicinity

[Circa 1900].

Price: $450.00

Unbound. A collection of nine larger format cabinet photographs. Approximately 7" x 5" gelatin silver prints mounted on thick cards which are approximately 9" x 7". A little modest wear at the edges of the cards, a few images a little faded, but overall near fine. A nice collection of images set in and around the logging camp in Arrow (formerly Arrowhead), Colorado. Uncaptioned, but one image shows the rustic log cabin used as the general merchandise store of O. V. Rice; the archives of the Denver Public Library identifies the identical building as being in Arrow. Set Southwest of Colorado Springs, Arrow was initially a logging camp, then a railroad construction camp, briefly a boom town, and finally a ghost town. Arrow was mostly abandoned after a fire destroyed most of the town in 1920. Other images show a steam engine, railroad construction and sheds, waterworks of some sort, and a few are probably tourist images, one or two of which show a formations similar to those at the Garden of the Gods, another of people in the snow outside of a rustic cabin. Pleasing images of turn of the century life.
