Photographs Of Frontier Life In The West


Between 1887 and 1892, John C.H. Grabill sent 188 photographs to the Library of Congress for copyright protection. Grabill is known as a western photographer, documenting many aspects of frontier life & hunting, mining, western town landscapes and white settlers’ relationships with Native Americans. Most of his work is centered on Deadwood in the late 1880s and 1890s. He is most often cited for his photographs in the aftermath of the Wounded Knee Massacre on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Great pics.  I was just in Deadwood, Lead, Sturgis over Easter.  Went to Devil's Tower too.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I spent a wek in Hot Springs a few summers ago.  I happened to be there during Sturgis and of course the place was packed with bikers.  We still had a great time.  We saw Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills.  Many of the places in the pics are recognizable today, including the Hot Springs plunge.  The city is still laid out as it is in the pics with the river going straight through the center of town.
