Gold Rush Days, Wickenburg 1950s
Although the annual Gold Rush Days is held in mid-February, a close look at one of my high resolution scans looks like it says "JAN 29 30 31" which would likely make this 1954. I know it is between 1951 and 1956. Photos taken by my dad, William Blessing.

Some of the business signs seen here are Ted's Cafe, Bratton's Bar 7, Motel Mecca, Mike Grady's, Judy's Bakery and Malt Shop, Kaiser Fraser, and Greyhound.

There is a Youtube video (not mine) of this event from 1958 here: youtu.be/ZYVzaup2acg.
