It's so much easier to transport goods from town to town now that we have these magnificent railroads!
Ah yes, I agree.
Boomtowns / Mining
I'm sure glad that we mined all this gold
Yea! This means more folks will come to our town
Homesteads were houses near ranches or crops that would tend to these lands and make a living out of growing, harvesting, and selling their crops. Homesteaders are the residents that live at and take care of these lands. I showed a Homesteader harvesting his crops in my comic after a long days work.
Mornin' mister, what can I get ya?
Railroads had a big impact when lots of them were installed all around towns. They allowed goods and people to be transported faster and more efficiently. I showed this in my comic by putting two wealthier men talking about how transportation will be so much easier now that there are railroads installed near their town.
Wow darling! This town is really busy now that they've increased their gold production
Boomtowns are towns that gained a lot of popularity and wealth from something happening in their town. The most common thing was when new mining areas were discovered and the town got more gold. I showed this in my comic by having miners remark about how with all the gold they just got their town would become more popular and attract more people.
Gimme yer dun money before I kill you or another one of yer dang horses!
AAH!!!! Tale whatever you want just leave us alone!
Harvey Houses were businesses that hired only women to work because they were nicer to the customers. These women were soon called "Harvey Girls". I showed this in my comic by having a man go into a diner building remarking about how the women is much nicer than the man that served him the week before.
You sure are nicer then those hooligans servin' me last week
Tourism back in the old West happened when towns started producing more buildings or gaining more goods. The new buildings and items would attract more people into the town. I showed this by making a more wealthy looking couple going down a street in a busy town talking about how the town has gained more popularity.
In old Western times there was a lot of violence going on because no laws were really enforced. This violence is one of the reasons why it's called the "Wild West". I showed this in my comic by presenting the sheer amount of violence there could be in every day lives.
