This weekend, do some shopping with Old Snowbeard via the Arizona Digital Newspaper Program and advertisements found in The Phoenix Herald of the Arizona Territory for Friday, November 21, 1879. Enjoy the adventure and let me know what you buy!
Are you an avid reader? Check out Robert Clarke & Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. Their “valuable catalogues” are ideal for those living way out West. Besides, they “give special attention to mail orders…”
Maybe Old Snowbeard wants you to have the Lost Dutchman gold mine, or what’s left of it, because he’s taking his cache and buying a hotel. First, he has to go to Blake & Company Assayers to see if he has enough to purchase the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Florence, Pinal County.
