Bath house in a tent near Las Vegas creek
Date of photograph estimated between 1904-1905. View of a bath house inside a tent on Las Vegas Creek in Las Vegas Ranch. "...water diverted from Las Vegas Creek ran through the sawed board in the foreground and into a wooden tub sunk in the ground. A plank is provided to step on while drying off, and thick matting covers the bare earth. Canvas curtains provided privacy" (p. [88], "Las Vegas, as it began--and grew" by Stanley W. Paher).
