Abstract:

Photos show detailed views of the Exploration Mercantile store at four different times in one year. Signs for other businesses located in the building are different, showing changes during that year. People and vehicles are also clearly visible. Views show: a snowy scene in front of the store, with men and cart in front, other businesses also visible -- the same store without snow or crowd, and men waiting with luggage for the stage -- one view captioned "On the Water Wagon R.R. day in Goldfield, Nev." showing a crowd of men sitting on a horse-drawn water wagon, an early car, and the street decorated with flags and electric lights -- the last view shows July 4th, with a crowd, a band with instruments, and the store decorated.
