Virginia City General Store   4 comments

Grocery shopping, 150 years ago. I can only imagine what wonderful sounds that old cash register made when used (see last pic).

Easy Walking. Really?   Leave a comment

I don’t think so. Looks like the comfort of women’s shoes hasn’t changed in over a century. Captured in a store window in Virginia City, MT:

Virginia City, Montana   11 comments

My son and I visited this old mining town recently. Founded in 1863, it was the capital of the Territory of Montana for 10 years. During that time, miners extracted over $90M ($40B in today’s dollars) of gold in the area, and the city housed about 10,000 people. Now its population is down to 132.
