Photo Details

Related Town: Rawhide, Nevada

Year: 1908


Description: Thanks to William Redak for donating this incredible photo. William provided the following text with the image:

The inscription on the upper left was put there by my great uncle Arthur Sweet. Uncle Arch was a mining engineer who spent most of his life in mining towns in Nevada and Colorado, with a little time in Arizona and Mexico for good measure.

I think Uncle Arch might be the man in the center foreground with a tie, dark coat and light hat. He may then have been known as Arthur Zwetow, his given name. He changed his last name to Sweet in about 1916.

A mine is a hole in the ground, owned by a liar.
