This 120 mm film negative was taken by David DeHarport in Ramah, Colorado on August 30,1985. A long brick structure fills the top half of the frame. "Dance Hall, Ramah" is spelled out in tiles or bricks on the building's facade. A row of blacked-out windows lines the the front of the building. The ground in front of building is unpaved.
David DeHarport (1921-2001) was a photographer, archaeologist, and anthropologist. Between 1937-2000, DeHarport photographed the southwestern United States, specifically focusing on Colorado and the Four Corners region. Much of his work focused on abandoned agricultural and mining towns in Colorado, as well as landscapes of the state's eastern plains. This photograph is part of the David DeHarport collection.
