Mama said, don't paint the babies!

I thought Mama said to Daddy, for the third time now, stop painting clothes on the babies! Now that your mining claim is bringing in money, we can afford clothes for the babies.

Phototime is my attempt to share some of the wonderful undigitized images with the public from the numerous collections that either a researcher has come to view, collections that have just been donated, photo collections that I find intriguing, as well as collections that my wonderful volunteers have finished organizing here in the Western History/Genealogy Collection.

Working with the photographic collection is one of my dreams come true.

Water everywhere! 

Except at the Central Library. Due to a water main break outside of the Central Library, the library was closed for 1 and 1/2 days. Hence a late Weird Photo Wednesday.
