Simple Pleasures, When Denver was a Quiet Little Town
School's out ~ time to dig some worms and go fishing, or have a picnic in City Park, or just a shady stroll along the Platte. A summer day in 1915 was so much more peaceful than it is today.
Something fishy is going on here. Can you imagine the fish story this man told. It might have been one of the few that was actually correct!
This is one majorly large fish, too bad the Sturgeon isn’t an eating fish. I wonder how many people this one could feed. Bet they cleaned up on the caviar market though.
