Scotty Wilkins Collection
Scotty Wilkins Collection
A collection of carefully labeled and dated photographs and ribbons from Georgetown, Colorado, mostly in the 1890s and early 1900s. Most photographs were taken by George Dalgleish, a studio photographer in Georgetown. The labels for dates and people seem to come from a previous owner or a copy owned by someone else, likely Louis Keck (whose name appears handwritten on the back of many of the photographs). A few items date from the second half of the twentieth century and are related to Scotty herself.
