(“Donkey Cart and Children,” photographer unknown, ca. 1885-1895. Courtesy of Special Collections, Pikes Peak Library District. Image Number: 173-3400.)

Small cart pulled by burro and loaded with children on unpaved road in front of large wooden houses. Four children sit in wagon and one stand; three children are standing in street in front of the wagon with two seated on the ground, and two children sit on the burro. The boys wear short pants and caps, and the girls are in dresses and most wear wide-brimmed hats. Note on back reads “seated at back of cart: K.F.A.” (probably Katherine Adams). Photo in B.F.D. Adams album.
