    Default The Ghost Town of "Panamint"

    : Anyway I was looking over a ghost town book and photos of what "Is" left now at Panamint, And then I look at my photos of "panamint" that I took myself back in the early 1950s and sure wish I had taken more, but I am glad I did take some photos of what was left (then) so I was wondering if any of you other "Ghost Town" buffs, know where I could find any orig. photos of Panamint before 1950s, or did anyone care about ghost towns before 1950s to even take time to visit these "Neat" places in those days, other than Mr. Fasher of Pomona, California and I was luckie enough to have a few of his great photographs but looking for more orig. photos, so if any of you know where I could locate any more of the early photos of these old mining towns all over the west, please contact me.

    : Thanks

His book has some old photos of Panamint City in it. I am not sure, but the more recent printing of the book MAY have more images, but I am still unsure of that. The book tells about the boom town with 700 men, 10 women and 4 inches of snow... Hehehehe, I love that Description!!! A boom town with 700 men, 10 women and 4 inches of snow...

    : Thanks! For the correction my mistake it is Frashers Foto, sometimes when I get up early and check my e-mail, and this great web-site before I have my coffee, I do get in a hurry and get careless, I going to double check my posting, from now on. I sure don`t want to misled any of my fellow Ghost towners.

    : And as far as #s or identifying marks,on these Frashers photos I can`t remember what is on them I have them all pack away and have not look at them for years, When I was looking at photos the other day I was looking at the one`s I took my self of Panamint back in the 1950s, But when I get some extra time I will get back with you on that information.

    : thanks again

    Default Just a Note on Buying books....

I contacted the seller, and he said he would refund my money. To this date, I have seen no refund, and the seller will not reply to any of my countless e-mail messages. Just thought I would let you all know cause he deals with ghost town and other similar books of interest...

    : Great advise Dezdan, I know that most of us can all relate to some kind of experience as you described and taking someone`s word as "golden" I guess that don`t apply anymore.
