Today's picture shows a great shot of the Deadwood Stage. The picture was taken in 1890. The stage has a full load of passengers.
There has been some great discussion on the topic of old historic towns being turned into gambling towns with casinos. I had mentioned that I visited Virginia City in Nevada, and how sad it was to see the historic mining boom town turned into little more than rows and rows of tawdry slot machines. On the other hand, I had the chance to visit Silverton, Colorado several times. Gaming had not moved in there, and it was a quaint little town that had very well preserved its history. Nice little shops, lots of antiques, and lots of historical things to see.
