Tombstone by tucsonmike on 2 May 2006 5:33am
 
Well we went yesterday. We have to return in the near future, because Elaine has research to do.

I promised you pictures.

Me behind the Clantons graves. Notice the "murdered on the streets of Tombstone."

The Jewish Memorial at Boot Hill. Jews arrived with the first White settlers.

The next four pictures are Allen Street, Tombstones main street and still a dirt street.

The official city site.

It is an hour and ten minute drive for me, but it is a nice drive, so I enjoy doing it. Tourism is THE industry. Tombstone lives completely on its past and the entire town is considered a National Historic Site. The first time I went, there were an entire group of British bikers from Cambridge there. They were wearing red and white, so I thought they were Man United fans. Big mistake!
