This image was made near Boot Hill just outside of Tombstone, Arizona. The Tombstone Cemetery give mute testimony to the hardships of Western frontier life. The people buried here were housewives, painted ladies, outlaws, gamblers, miners, business men and women, blacksmiths, cowboys and those "who died with their boots on". Among its occupants are Billy Clanton, Tom and Frank McLaury of OK Corral gunfight fame. Dutch Annie, the "Queen of the Red Light District", Quong Kee and other famous and not so famous residents that contributed to Tombstone's early history. By the 1920s Boothill had fallen into ruin. It was restored from early burial records by Tombstone citizens in the late 1920s"
