Say Goodbye to Colorado’s Winter with These Classic Photos
I don't know about you, but I'm already missing the winter weather here in Colorado. Maybe these classic photos from Robert Grant can pacify us until winter rolls back around.
Take a look at Grand Junction and other areas around Western Colorado with these Robert Grant photos from the 1940s and 50s.
Already Missing Colorado's Winter Weather
Could you use a little more snow? I sure could. It may have something to do with the fact I've spent the last two weekends pulling weeds. The sunburn I received on March 27 catapulted me out of the winter mindset and threw me straight into summer.
Classic Robert Grant Photos From Western Colorado
These galleries are fun. These came from the second drawer of Robert Grant's yellow file cabinet. Sorry, those are generic terms I use to distinguish where these photos from his personal collection were located. Some come from the box marked "Bob Photos Box A" while others come from manilla envelopes with no designation.
This pretty much wraps up the hand-developed prints from Bob Grant's private collection. My next project - hundreds of thousands of negatives needing to be scanned. I'll see you sometime in the year 2054, shortly after Vulcans make first contact on Earth. This is going to take some time.
On Second Thought...
While reflections of Colorado winters tend to generate happy thoughts, there is a dark side to the season. Some of the photos in the gallery below feature train derailments, car crashes, and other catastrophes.
Please enjoy a handful of Robert Grant photos from around Western Colorado. Keep in mind, that most of these are at least 70 years old. Like always, keep your eyes open for faces you might recognize.
