Illustrations for "A Peep at Washoe" by J. Ross Browne, in Harper's Monthly Magazine, Vol. XXII, p. 4, December 1860, Harper Brothers, New York. Image on first page of article is signed "Stephens" (first name unknown to me). All images in the article appear to be the same artist.

The main topic of the article is the silver rush in the Washoe Valley of what was then the Utah Territory and is now the U.S. state of Nevada. However, several of the first pictures relate to gold rushes in the decade before that silver rush.
