Deadwood, SD - 1912

View of the town of Deadwood, South Dakota in 1912. Deadwood gradually evolved from a wild frontier town to a prosperous commercial center and though the city moved forward into the twentieth century, the image of the Wild West town has always lingered. For the next several decades gambling and prostitution establishments were still considered legitimate businesses. However, both would soon come under attack from reformers, believing that the two were partly responsible for causing social problems, such as drunkenness and poverty. However, gambling remained legitimate until 1947 and the brothels didn't close until 1980. Today, gambling has once again been made legal in the old mining camp.
