Cripple Creek 1900: a Colorado
An eyewitness account by Francis Lynde.
Cripple Creek got a later start than most of the West's famous mining camps. In fact,
many of its predecessors had already played out by 1891 when the Golconda was uncovered
here. Tells how Cripple Creek got its name, gives history of nearby Pikes Peak, explains
the mines and their mechanization. Because the industrial revolution was at peak in
America in 1900, the technology of railway, electricity, and steam drilling could be
applied at Cripple Creek. Reading this account helps us understand how Colorado and other
Western states which had mineral resources were able to get a good and early start on
their development, albeit at the expense of the Cripple Creeks, which were destined to
bust just as they had been destined to boom.
Period illustrations, 20 pages.
