Denver on February 23, 1947:
Bob Huff reads a dime novel, titled Fancy Frank of Colorado in the Western History department of the Denver Public Library. DPL’s Western History Collection opened to the public in 1935. Today, it’s one of the world’s leading research centers for Colorado history and the history of the American West (and it’s also where a lot of the images on this Tumblr come from). Go visit. The people who work there are great, and they want to help you.
