Abstract (in English)

Virginia City, Nevada, is an historic mining town in the West. Started like most other mining towns as a temporary place to be exploited only until the ore ran out, Virginia City soon became a major industrial city with all the capital investment, labor specialization and urban development typical of an industrial city.
