A rare treat!

A rare treat!

We love digitizing historic papers for Chronicling America! We work with microfilm reels and never handle original papers. However, yesterday we had a rare surprise– Dr. Peter Michel (Chair of our Advisory Board) was conducting research and came across a picture of the Goldfield News staff from 1905, and he brought over the actual newspaper to us! (Goldfield News, Annual Edition, 1905)

WOW! What a treat!

We had to share with all of you – we photo’d the paper and zoomed in parts to share!

It really is amazing people came to this desert and built a life, I cannot imagine the challenges they faced! We are so grateful they documented so many experiences and we get to enjoy them today.

Enjoy the pictures and have a great weekend! If you wish to browse more of the Goldfield News, we have 1904 through 1910 digitized online at Chronicling America here!

(We will also put these photos on the website’s “Nevada History” section under “Goldfield”)

Thanks, Dr. Michel!
