LEADVILLE_0001Three well dressed men pose for their photograph in the mining town of Leadville, Colorado. The photographer is Luke.  The men are wearing Western clothing and great hats. One man has a pocket watch and chain. Leadville is located at an altitude of 10,152 feet and in the late 1800’s was the second most populated city in Colorado. Denver was number one in population. Leadville was one of the worlds largest Silver camps and was the home of Doc Holliday shortly after the gunfight at the OK Corral.
