I was digging in the back of some file drawers and found these early issues of the "Tombstone Times." I was surprised to find the first article I ever wrote for this journal. More amazing was that it came out ten years ago THIS MONTH.
So ten years, times 12 articles a year, equals 120 articles. How can that possibly be?
This particular article was about the first permanent building in Tombstone: Once the mercantile and banking establishment of John B. "Pie" Allen and Philip William "Bill" Smith.
This adobe building was later a medical center where many local people were born and died.
Today it is the Tombstone Visitor Information Center.
I will be submitting an updated version of this article for the March issue.
My! How time flies.
