Idaho Penitentiary Hospital

Idaho Penitentiary Hospital circa 1912.
Source: John T. Richards (JTR) Collection.
I love this old photo postcard. It shows John W. Snook, Warden, and D.W. Ackley, Assistant Warden. Another gentlemen is identified as the "florist" but not named. May be a prison Trusty.

About all that remains of the hospital is the foundation. It was damaged/destroyed in the 1971 riots at before the old pen was closed down. Deputy Warden Ackley was a familiar figure during the 1907 Haywood trial. He was a Prison Guard at the time and one of Orchard's escorts to and from the Pen & Courthouse.

Real Photo Postcard Caldwell Banking & Trust Co. circa 1903-1905

Click link below to see more of the post and comments in the All Idaho group.

Here is another great RPPC (to me anyway) acquired with the recent batch. I have included some detail scans. I just started playing with it but here are a few first looks. A pretty rare find. Circa 1904-5.

Wish I could get a better look through those windows! Who knows where this is? Should be easy for most. I will add additional comments later.
