Scope and content

Postcard, "Colorado Photography" by John Topolnicki. Caption on the reverse: "Tiger-On-The-Swan; 8 Miles North of Breckenridge" and "High Country - Summit County - Colorado; Virtually a ghost town, and a fine example of how old mining towns of the area looked. Tiger was a later arrival, its curious name stemming from the fact it was built to house employees of the Royal Tiger Mine and Mill. Buildings erected in the 1920's and 1930's."
