View of the smelters at Durango (in the distance), with the Animas River running along the left edge of the photo and a dirt road and railroad tracks crossing the river in the foreground. Possibly a photo by Jacob A. Boston, who was the active photographer in Durango during that time; it was found with other early Durango photos, one of which was stamped on the back by the J. A.
