Wow ~ Jury Duty! It's a civic obligation that many of us have participated in, creating a lot of interesting memories. These rocking chairs for the jury at the Clear Creek Court House are a lot more homey than the benches in the Denver Court, but no doubt the trials were just as interesting. Our Digital Collections contain numerous photos of courtrooms, courthouses, and lawyers, that illustrate legal drama spanning 100 years of Colorado History.
"Wow Photo Wednesday" celebrates photographs in the Denver Public Library's Digital Collections that have "The Wow Factor" and that highlight the myriad delightful nuggets in our database.
Maybe if they still had rocking chairs for juries, more people would be excited about jury duty. Or maybe everyone would rock themselves to sleep...
Great for insomniacs!
This is a terrific picture, and it reminds that I haven't been on jury duty for a couple of decades now. I wonder if they still know I'm alive and available.
