Tombstone, Arizona in 1881 photographed by C. S. Fly. An ore wagon at the center of the image is pulled by 15 or 16 mules leaving town for one of the mines or on the way to a mill. The town had a population of about 4,000 that year with 600 dwellings and two church buildings. There were 650 men working in the nearby mines. The Tough Nut hoisting works are in the right foreground. The firehouse is behind the ore wagons, with the Russ House hotel just to the left of it.
Nellie Cashman was a driving force in the hay day of Tombstone, AZ. She is known as "The Angel of the Mining Camps." Business owner, activist, prospector. Stay tuned for pictures of my trip to the restaurant she once owned.
Copper Queen Hotel Bisbee, Arizona Opened in 1902, the Copper Queen Hotel was one of the most modern, luxurious, and popular spots during the mining boom. Today it is still a charming getaway in southern Arizona–with three “permanent” residents.
Guide to Old Town Scottsdale: Scottsdale Civic Mall (Plaza), has a love sign, great for photos! Couple of good restaurants on the plaza too: AZ88, great food, patio & cocktails. As well as Orange Table (great breakfast & lunch, sometimes iffy service). #scottsdale #arizona
