Several storefronts face Main and Eureka streets in early day Central City, Colorado, probably in the early 1860s. Among the businesses are a clothing store, a hardware store and a concert hall with billiard rooms. Several horse-drawn wagons travel on the streets. A log cabin is under construction in the right foreground.
