Photo: Douglas 70 years ago

Posted: Friday, November 28, 2003

This photograph shows Douglas as it appeared in the early 1930s. The town was established as a mining community in 1881, and prior to that had been referred to as "Edwardsville," presumably after early resident and miner H.H. Edwards. In 1902, the "City of Douglas" was incorporated.
