Photograph article dated November 21, 1950 partially reads, "Rhyolite, historic gold town, is alive again - this time in the litigation of those who say they own property in the 'almost' ghost town. The legal snarls prove that Rhyolite may eventually be saved from the fate of Death Valley towns now as lost and gone forever as 'My Darling Clementine.' Before the oldtimers and the 'squatters' started arguing over who owned the desolate stretches of Rhyolite, Mrs. Bessie Stratton, formerly of Sunland, was virtually the only one who swept the ghosts away and made Rhyolite a spot on the map in tourists' guides." Photograph caption reads, "Pretty stuff - Mrs. Bessie Stratton, formerly of Sunland, displays a hand made mineral display at the famed bottle house in Rhyolite, ghost town."; See images #00137111 through #00137113 for all photos in this series.
