Historic image of Virginia City and Gold Hill lawmen,
marked Beals & Waterhouse New York Art Gallery No. 100 South C Street Virginia City. Albert J. Beals (born 1821) began his career in photography in 1845 as a daguerreotypist in Charleston, SC. He soon moved to New York City and operated studios on Broadway until 1854. By 1863 he had relocated to Gold Hill, Nevada. In addition to being a photographer Beals was now a practicing dentist as well. He also had mining interests in the area and in 1875 opened the "New York Gallery" in nearby Virginia City, Nevada. This studio was located at 100 South C Street and operated until 1887.

Gold Hill Marshal, thought to be J. L. McCleery.

Following the Comstock Lode silver strike in 1859, Virginia City became the wealthiest place in the United States.
Miners, gamblers and others poured in and the population exploded.  Neighboring Gold Hill and Silver City were more working class.
