Content Description

The collection consists of one 7x10 inch albumen print, mounted on card stock of the Evans Hotel in Hot Springs (S.D.) taken by Hot Springs photographer W. R. Cross. The image shows a number of people lined up in front of the hotel with a horse drawn carriage to the far left. American flags are seen hanging from the hotel. The caption on the photo reads, “The Evans Hotel, Hot Springs, S.D., The Carlsbad of America, on F.E. & M.V. and B & M. Ry’s” The Evans Hotel was built in 1892 and Cross died in 1907. Presumably this would date the image to the 1890s or early 1900s.
