About This Image
This is a photograph of the front of Murphys Historic Hotel in Murphys, California. Murphys is an historic town located in the Sierra foothills. This town was one of several in the area that spawned the California Gold Rush in 1849 and afterwords.
This hotel built in 1856 (this is old for California) boasts many famous personages as it's guests. They include:
Ulyssess S. Grant
Susan B. Anthony
Black Bart (Outlaw)
Several of the rooms are preseverd in the their original state. The town is an interesting place to visit and the hotel is a particularly fun place to check out.
I happened to be waiting across the street from the hotel and decided to pull off a few shots. Coincidently, a man stepped out into the doorway of the pub and started taking pictures of me. (You can see him in the photo (left door)). We stood there for a few seconds in a genuine photographic shootout on Main Street.
