This early tintype photograph taken around 1890 shows the turn of the century dress and attire. The man standing on the left was carrying a gun for protection as did many of the early day residents of Roslyn, Washington Territory during the coal mine strikes in 1888 and 1889. The residents of the Roslyn area were very tolerant of many different ethnic and racial groups of people.
