  1. I didn't realize Deadwood was down in between hills like that.

  2. I'm with, Charles. That is an amazing shot!

  3. I always pictured Deadwood more like Fort Worth but smaller. Salt Lake City hadn't changed much by the 1940's when I was in high school and washing dishes in the finest hotel in the State, Hotel Utah, across the street from from the famous Temple Square.

  4. Woops, got one too many froms in there.
