Rare Chromolithographic Panorama View of Butte -- Published in Montana
Rare Panoramic View of Butte, Montana, published by "Published by Keefe Bros. Post Office News Stand Butte, Mont." and lithographed by Todd Photo & Film Co.
The view provides a fine early image of the town of Butte in 1916, with smelters and other mining infrastructure shown in the foothills hundreds of buildings in the foreground.
By 1920, the population in Butte was nearly 100,000. Almost the entire population was directly affected by the mining industry in one way or another.
The view is very rare. This example would seem to be a unique survival.
