Cabin of Callahan, James Francis, 1912
1912 | Wallace
Image of James Francis Callahan packing water to his cabin on Nine Mile Creek, near Wallace, Idaho in 1912. Caption on back: "'In 1886, I hurriedly erected myself a cabin near my location on Nine Mile Creek. This cabin was made of logs, chinked with mud and moss. The roof was made of cedar shakes. Muslin was used in place of a window pane. Outside, the cabin really looked humble and crude, but, to me, inside was cheerful and cozy.' -Jim Callahan, 1916"
