[Detail of “Miners’ home” and Restaurant.](https://i.imgur.com/DgoCDbN.jpg) I wonder what kind of food they served? Behind the restaurant it’s probably the town house towering over it, or some rich person’s home. You can see a windpump peeking up behind the roof, supplying the town with fresh water.
The children seem to be engrossed in a game, playing with a rope or hose they’ve pulled out from the restaurant. The men are idly standing by watching them in their game.
[Close-up of the Saloon!](https://i.imgur.com/MU2DVV0.jpg) Inside there’s no doubt workers having a drink. Two little children, perhaps siblings, maybe friends, wondering what Jackson is up to with his camera. There is no mother in sight but by the look of things the children are free to roam the streets and play!
This Photograph was taken by [William H. Jackson](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Henry_Jackson) smack in the middle of San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado, in roughly [this spot looking south](https://email@example.com,-107.5616262,6697m/data=!3m1!1e3). If you drop the little street view guy into one of the photospheres [(taken by Seth)](https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-107.5638949,3a,51.7y,199.63h,107.49t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipPKL2d1rTA6K40zqpC02lPpeIA79K-uB7zbUSt-!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipPKL2d1rTA6K40zqpC02lPpeIA79K-uB7zbUSt-%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-0-ya88.50001-ro-0-fo100!7i8704!8i4352) you will see a beautiful panorama depicting the same mountains you can see in Jackson’s photo. If you turn around in the sphere you can also get a peek of the remaining foundations of Sunnyside Mill, which was the main source of income for Eureka, and it’s closing in 1939 led to Eureka quickly becoming a ghost town.
Today there is a campground, and the only remaining structure is the tiny Eureka Jail.
Hope you enjoy the colors!
I will say that when I first saw this I thought “Wow Red Dead Redemption 2, has amazing graphics”
You did a phenomenal job on the colors. Would love to have a higher res of this for my wallpaper!
I need more photos like this. RDR2 has me obsessed with this time period.
Is this before or after all the scientists/accidents?
It looks like they’re having a better time than we are
The details and shows in the hills and clouds! Wow! There were like no shadows before, and now there’s some, and even clouds!
Why did some of the houses have a normal slanted roof but then the front of the buildings would be squared out, and other houses would not. did it have a particular porpuse??
Photos like this remind me of how young the United States is. The Wild West era was only a little over a hundred years ago, meaning that it was theoretically possible for cowboys to be World War I veterans.
Wow, it looks great. Thought it was Red Dead Redemption 2
