From rough & tumble Deadwood, Dakota Territory...

Item # 690673

July 07, 1886

BLACK HILLS DAILY TIMES, Deadwood, Dakota, July 7, 1886  This city would arguably be--along with Tombstone & Dodge City--one of the more famous of all the towns from the rough & tumble days of the Old West, and only rarely do such issues come to light. 
This issue is from the "heyday" of the Wild West. Some of the most celebrated names of the Old West passed through Deadwood, not the least of whom was "Wild Bill" Hickock, who was famously murdered in this town ten years previous.
Page 2 has a wonderful & very descriptive article headed: "The Black Hills" "What an Omaha Journalist Says About Deadwood".
Four pages with various news tidbits throughout and a wealth of ads, most with a decidedly "western" theme. Some minor tears at margins, binding indents at the blank spine, good condition.
