Office of John Wesley Hardin (Wells Fargo Building in the 1890s, now Alamo Shooters Supply), 100 East San Antonio Avenue

Alamo Shooters Supply, 100 East San Antonio Avenue. In the 1890s, this was the home of the Wells Fargo Building, and is one of the oldest buildings in downtown El Paso. On the third floor, the room behind the window in the northeast portion of this photograph served as gunfighter John Wesley Hardin's law office for a scant few months until he was killed by Constable John Selman in the Acme Saloon, literally two blocks away. See related photos in this blog. Photo taken October 11, 2006.
