Wood buildings with false fronts line a rocky dirt street in Animas Forks, a town about 13 miles northeast of Silverton, Colorado. An unhitched wagon is in the left foreground near a store with a large wood sign "General Merchandise" over its entrance. Another unhitched wagon is in front of a business with an illegible sign. The Mercer Hotel stands farther down the block. A ridge of mountains with patches of snow on them stands in the distance.
[between 1876 and 1900?]
