early 1900s

This is a beautiful shot by William Collins, probably from the early 1900s. It was taken from the bluffs just east of Nemo. You can see Boxelder Creek, Homestake logs/lumber along the railroad tracks, and Custer Peak in the back right.


We now have a current photo. You can see that Nemo has gone from a tight village around the creek and railroad, to a sprawling exurban district of set-back houses becoming more and more numerous. The partly completed building at center left dwarfs its neighbors and predecessors. Many railroad and lot lines are unmoved.

Can anyone date the old photo precisely?
