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:

Dixieland in the Wild West   Leave a comment

This band was playing (badly out of tune) Dixieland Jazz in an old-fashioned theatre in Virginia City, an old mining town in Montana:

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.
