Bisbee Memories

"Bisbee Memories" – Image 3" x 5"

This Downtown view revived memories: Mother took us to see the doctor in the building
on the left, a Hospital (where I was born) and “Dispensary.” The high ceilings are lowered,
the grand staircase gone, the light airy feeling is lost. My grandfather lived at The Copper
Queen Hotel (center of the painting) after my grandmother died, and before he remarried.
I had dinners with him there as a little girl. The right side, yellow art deco building was
the Phelps Dodge Mercantile Co. where people bought clothes, shoes, groceries, etc.
