Posing by the Mullan Monument at the confluence of the Blackfoot and Clark Fork Rivers
Date (Unknown or Estimated)
Four women stand in front of the fence surrounding the monument. Railroad tracks, a teepee burner, and smokestack can be seen in the background between the monument and the mountains. The monument was later moved into Missoula at intersection of Orange, Main, and Front Streets; then in late 1990s it was moved back to Bonner area, on the highway west of the Blackfoot River across highway from the Town Pump truck stop. A label, reading "69" was added to the upper left corner of the photograph. Photo caption reads: Mullan's Monument. Mullan encamped there during the winter of 1859-60 (sic). The monument was near the confluence of the Blackfoot and Clark Fork Rivers, on the west bank across from Milltown. It is now located by the old highway, about a 1/2 mile past East Missoula going towards Missoula.
