    Default Mystery Town

    Posted by Becky Smudge on "scenic" newsgroup. Anyone recognize this historic town? The Belmont Saloon was no help to me in researching.

    Also, I have no idea how many more of these photos she has but so far, they are all unidentified.

    Default Helena montana 1872

    It is Main Street in Helena Montana in 1872. See:

    If you look real close it says "HELENA" over the Belmont Saloon sign.

    These 72 year old eyes are still working I guess. If you look closer yet it says: HELENA and right below is LIVERY.
