Porch at Tom Kelly's Bottle House in the Rhyolite ghost town, just NE of Death Valley in Beatty, Nevada. Rhyolite was at its peak during the gold rush around 1906-1910. Shortly after that it was deserted as only one small mine was ever found there. During its heyday there were many elegant buildings (such as a 3-story bank with marble floors, electricity and heat) and 3 railroads. The bottle house was constructed of some 30,000 beer and liquor bottles and intended to be raffled off. It served as a residence and later as a curio shop. It had 3 rooms.
