Cabin of S. J. Roberts, Cripple-Creek Colorado 1893 (colorized)
This iconic western mining scene has been repaired and colorized by Western Mining History. Depicted is the "Cabin of S.J. Roberts" at Cripple Creek, Colorado in 1893. One miner poses with tools while the other two play musical instruments. Note the illustration of a small bird on the stump, which was apparently drawn on the photo by the photographer.
The gold rush at Cripple Creek had just started a year before this photo was taken, and was one of the West's most significant historical events.
