Colors of yesteryears on Allen Street, Tombstone, AZ; an old mining camp dating of 1877 that knew many days of lawlessness and violence wich had then-President Chester Arthur declaring martial law and sending in military troops to restore order. (Nowadays, they fake gunfights for the audience!!)
During WWI Tombstone was a major producer of maganese for the government and in WWII was extracting lead for the cause.
After both conflicts Tombstone faded in obscurity until its gradual restoration for tourism,
The sign "Stetson" refers to an outlet for the world- famous "Hat of the West".

Tombstone! The location of many Western movies too!
Seems a bit brushed up from back then, and the legendary stage coach looks like a fine replica...
A well framed scene, characterized by rich vivid colours, good lines!

Wonderful nostalgic shot of bygone days.
I can feel the Earp and Clanton brothers luking in the shadows.
Strong light brings beautiful sandows to the stage and its two proud horses.
The colors anre very clear and the details very snarp.

Ah the good old days when a man did what a man had to do. Nowadays men are not sure of who they are supposed to be. Great mustache. Nice light accentuates the colours. What have you done with your stetson? Regards. Klaudio.
