Collection Agnes Miner Collection
Description Interior of the C.A. Finding Hardware Store on Main Street, Breckenridge, Colorado, circa 1894. Two well-dressed men in suitcoats and necktie lean on a desk that is pushed against the wall. Potted plants line the shelf above and in the window. Calendars and illustrated posters and prints decorate the wall. A wooden spindle railing separates the office area from public space, with an ornate parlor stove on either side. Another desk, a bookcase and office chairs furnish the room and the corner edge of a glass case is visible in the foreground. Quoted from handwritten text on the reverse: "Probably Mr. Miner's office in his hardware store Breckenridge. Calendar on wall - October 1894".
