Having grown up during the time of cowboy and indian movies and tv shows, I really love Tombstone. Many of the buildings are original - with repairs of course. This is no movie set or your average tourist trap although the chief industry now is tourism. It is a place where you can still feel the past. The town was laid out in 1879 and soon had a population of over 15,000. Now it is around 1500. It was a mining town boastingmore salons and brothels than any other in the west. It was a violent place to live during the 1880's. Tombstone is also home to the famous Earp/Clanton shootout, Doc Holliday, Big Nose Kate, Boothilland the Tombstone Epitaph - the oldest continuously run newspaper in the country. It was named Tombstone when a friend of the miner Schieffelin told him "The only thing you're likely to find thereis your ownTombstone".

Yesterday,

Clever caption. Nice panoramic view of what I assume is main street. Thanks for the capsule history t does lend some meat to the photo.

Very cool! If you have any photos of the OK Corral or Boot Hill I would love to see them.

Thank you all for your comments. I put a few pictures on a website for those who asked to see more of Tombstone. Unfortunately, there are only a few and similar to the one I posted. Here is the site address: http://picasaweb.google.com/karenlandry999/Tombstone

I just visited your picasa site, very enjoyable! Looks like a really cool place to spend a day! I was really struck by the blue sky, not a cloud to be seen! Thank you for posting these for us!
