At a New Mining
Camp: Creede of Colorado, 1892
At a New Mining Camp: Creede of Colorado, 1892.
by Richard Harding Davis.
Today Creede is a "ghost" town in southwestern Colorado (the italics because today's residents don't like being called ghosts), a remnant of its former size and glory. But author Davis reports at a time when activity there seemed circus-like. At the1892 time Creede was growing rapidly to a population of 8,000. The town was rip-roaring, and this account helps us understand the bustle as well as the unbounded hope and optimism at the site of a new mining boom. Reprinted from 19th century originals.
Period illustrations (page 17 by Thomas Moran), 32 little pages.
