Garnet was a hardcore mining boom town in the 1890's and miles up in the remote mountains from anything resembling civilization. A few enterprising men came to town and saw a need for big city comforts. Mr. Wells opened his hotel for miners, visiting business people, and families to enjoy a respite from hard work or a rough trip in. It must have been quite enjoyable for folks to settle back in the hotel parlor with a cigar or a drink, and listen to the Victrola, while the staff prepared a fine meal for them in the back kitchen. I am sure in this remote location that it must have been a pleasant surprise for the weary traveler indeed.
MODIFICATIONS and CUSTOM Orders WELCOME!
As a youth, I was constantly drawing, painting, and experimenting in fine arts. Also, I had a strong interest in architecture. Today, I enjoy photography, history, drawing and painting.
I labored over 25 years in a pre-World War II aluminum mill, some of the time on catwalks above two-thousand degree, electrically charged molten metal. At the height of my career the plug was pulled when various globalist financiers ravaged the company. In my mid-40s, I returned to college and re-educated as a computer network engineer. I currently work for local government.
My wife is a Kyoto, Japan native, so I have photographed that area extensively and some of that will probably show up in my work here....
