About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

3rd and Front

Boarding house was likely at 3rd and Front St, assuming this building is the larger one in the background (but viewed from another direction).

Got That Right Horace!

1932 Ford V8 Victoria Average asking price $57,431; lowest price in last three years $26,500!


The lower right window pulls in an antenna wire and a ground wire outside the window framing. I can't tell if the wire continues from the first roof post to the second.

That 1932 Ford Victoria would be worth a small fortune, today

Watch that first step

The upper door, an old balcony/upper porch judging from the scars on the wall framing, reminds me that most buildings in the Colorado Rockies needed a way out when the snow was real deep. I wonder if this upper door was used the same way in winter.
