From a reader – Votes for Mitchell

A reader was kind enough to share this photo from the State Capital fight of the early 1900’s which pitted ‘peerless Pierre’ against arch-rival Mitchell for the honor of hosting the State’s Capitol Building:

As was noted to me by the reader…

“The Cabinet style photo was take by photographer Jerome Wiltse of Mitchell. I was thinking that this was taken in the 2nd fight as Jerome died in 1900 before the 1904 fight.

I will be donating it to the State Archives.”

A very neat remnant of our past. Thank you very much for sharing it with us, and eventually the people of South Dakota!
