The Club Mustache

Elks Fall Ranch 1955

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. Starting in Western History as a part time shelver where I fell in love with the digitization project (loved it so much that I stayed an extra hour my first day cruising the digital collection), and working my way into the photographic collection Sales and Research. I Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The first collection is, of course one of my favorite. But then again I'll probably say that about them all.
