Today’s Top 5

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!

Radio

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.

Miss Vicky

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.
