1880's Photo of Roosevelt County Elida,New Mexico Old Cowboy & Outlaw Watering Hole1880's Photo of Roosevelt County Elida,New Mexico Old Cowboy & Outlaw Watering Hole

Scarce original 7 x 10 " showing photograph showing the Bizy Bee Restaurant in Elida,New Mexico in the late 1880's.

There is an old roughneck Cowboy hanging out of the second story window holding a hammer. While on the street the Butcher, Baker and Candlestick maker appeared transfixed as to what is going on west of them.

In realty I just wonder how "Bizy" this restaurant truly was? It appears half the town's population is posing for the picture. And the other half are likely in the cemetery from the imported oysters. Early New Mexico images are so rare to find and this example is a treasure.

The 2000 census listed only 183 people living in Elida,New Mexico. How many were there in the 1880's?
