Granite, which thrived in the 1890s as a silver mining center, is now a ghost town, though Philipsburg still exists, with a population of 820 in the 2010 census. Though undated, this volume was likely produced during the area's silver mining heyday, and features views of the towns of Granite and of Philipsburg. Also included are views of a number of mines (with their names given), mining company offices, mining equipment, and miners themselves. There are also views of local schools, churches, hotels, homes, residences, shops, and a fishing scene. There is also an interesting view of Main Street in Granite on June 9, 1891, showing the street flooded with rushing water. Charles Weitfle, a German immigrant, was a Union photographer during the Civil War and is best known as a producer of stereoviews. He was based in Colorado in the 1870s and 1880s, until a Denver fire consumed his studio in 1883. He eventually moved to Cheyenne, and then to Granite County, Montana. A nice volume of views of mining towns in late 19th century Montana.
