Central City, CO: A. M. Thomas, Photo. Very Good. Mounted albumen print depicting a scene along a railroad in Colorado with photographer's imprint on mount. Albumen print measures 7 ½" x 9 ½"; with mount 10" x 12". Published circa 1900. Original mount has light wear to edges and light toning; photo has moderate overexposure or sunning but content can still be clearly viewed. A. M. Thomas was a photographer active in Central City, Colorado from 1900-1901 (Mautz p. 209). With no title and little information on Thomas, the specifics of this image are a mystery to this cataloguer. The image is set in the Rocky Mountains, likely near Central City, Colorado, with a creek at the center of the image, a railroad track on the left, a wood-plank retaining wall on the right, and a few sets of pipes running along and across the creek. .
