Photographs of the early American West by 19th century photographer Timothy O’Sullivan as featured in The Daily Mail. The caption for the above image reads:

“Industrial revolution: The mining town of Gold Hill, just south of Virginia City, Nevada, in 1867 was town whose prosperity was preserved by mining a rare silver ore called Comstock Lode. On the United States Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel, Clarence King insisted that his men dress for dinner every evening and speak French, and O’Sullivan had no difficulty fitting in.”
