Western Photos 3

During the late 1800's, not everything in the West was "to scale." Take a look at the buildings pictured here, and those I posted earlier. You will typically see buildings built with high doors and ceilings right next to buildings built on the cheap with lower doorways and lower ceilings--even a shack right next to a false front store. Of course, you don't see this as much on Hollywood backlots, giving the impression that 1880's Western towns were neatly designed and built. Far from it.
