Photographer's Note

This image is inside Harvey Boone's store which continued selling into the 1920s even though Bodie's population was only 110, instead of the thousands during its glory years in the 1860s and 70s.
The store continued operating primarily because it added two gasoline pumps to serve a new tourism via automobiles and a curosity to see a genuine wild west ghost town.

In this photo the large coffee grinder is dominant and the dusty shelves still stocked with goods for sale. The James S. Cain family owned most of Bodie by the 1930s and it was not worth the time and expense to remove the goods when there was no one to buy them.
