All gone to dust and rust....all gone.
I love these old photos. For many years, I enjoyed being able to find a Ford in nearly every photo. Now, armed with a little more knowledge about early makes, I seem to find a Maxwell in nearly every photo too. This time, it's the 3rd from the right as we look at the picture.

In Minnesota every day is the fourth of July if it's not snowing!
There are other photos of that brick building in Rushmore but I don't think it survives today.
The photo was most likely taken in 1909 based on the cars because of the color of the license plate:
1909 = silver over red
1910 = gold over black - I don't think the gold would show up bright like in the photo
1911 = white over dark blue - however, only one plate was issued per car and it was displayed on the back
1912-13-14 = black over aluminum or tin
Rushmore is so close to Minnesota's Southern border the natives speak Iowegian.
Tourism really dropped off when they moved Mount Rushmore to South Dakota.
They had to move it. They wanted it to be in the United States.
Good point. As if it isn't bad enough, these people speaking Iowegian and eatin' da hotdish, don'cha know ?!!!
Yah, shure! By Gott dey like dat hotdish!
