And the West is History: North Main Avenue, Street-Scene – Ca. 1938

These three men are not identified but one can easily place their location near Brookside Park, just north of where Junction Creek crosses Main Avenue. Today, a picture from the same position would show the Durango Chamber of Commerce just beyond the white building on the left. There was also no date given for this picture but the car on the street to the right appears to be a 1936 Chevy sedan. Today, just above this sedan you would see Durango High School on the east side of the street. – Ed Horvat for Animas Museum, edhorvat@animasmuseum (Catalog Number: from the La Plata County Historical Society Photo Collections)
