Today's picture shows Downtown Deadwood in 1888. There is some sort of parade going on, and you can get a real sense of the hustle and bustle of this mining boom town. Some people commented yesterday that Deadwood today has become a casino town. That is really sad to me. I had visited a mining boom town outside Reno, Nevada. I think the town was Virginia City, and it was the same things. All the historic old hotels and everything had been turned into casinos.
