Photographer's Note

What do Elvis Presley, Mark Twain, Ulysses S. Grant and Bette Davis have in common?
They are all famous people who have stayed in Placerville's Historic Cary House Hotel, along with rumored 'friendly ghosts' roaming the hallways at night.
Since 1857, the Cary House has been a popular lodging choice in the middle of the gold country. It also housed on the first floor the headquarters of Wells Fargo, including drop-offs of gold on the way to the mint. And today visitors may still stay in this elegant hotel and explore historic gold town Placerville.

In the image is a circa 1930s jalopy from the May Placerville auto show, with the Cary House behind.
