We lunch on the way to Rhyolite.
We reach Rhyolite at 3:25 p.m. the first house we saw was the Bottle House a picture of which appears on the opposite page but we drove thru the town until we reached the railroad depot, here we left our machines and made a tour of the town. 25 miles this date; The Bottle House.
On the opposite page is a picture of the railway depot, Rhyolite, Nev. This building was constructed of stone but time is slowly doing its work as may be noticed on the sign facing the machines; The Railway Depot, Rhyolite Nevada.
On our hike thru the town we came across many shacks like this one. Rhyolite is surrounded by land that is full of gold but the main vein is yet to be found, the hills show many try-outs one may be seen on the hill back of this shack; The ravages of "Time."
The Church of Rhyolite, the only building that had all of its windows intact; The Church of Rhyolite.
The insides of these buildings were littered with glass evidently there were lots of brick throwers came thru Rhyolite after it was deserted; The National Bank Building.
The Hotel had fine stairways in it all rotting away for lack of care. These face the main street; The Hotel Building.

After seeing the town house we went back to the depot got in our machines and drove back to the Bottle House where we spent the night; the front porch of the Bottle House.
The back porch of the Bottle House. Bottles were free and many of them. Other building materials were scarce. There were about 30 or more Saloons in Rhyolite; the back porch of the Bottle House.
Here is another Bottle House. The weather here is so dry that lots of the bottles still had the labels on them. Note the workings in the hills; a Bottle House which has taken a tumble.
Building material was so scarce in Rhyolite that most anything went, here an enterprising citizen made himself a house of the cans; A Tin Can House.
