Tattoo Tales

Anyone remember a time when it seemed like only a veteran would have an anchor tattooed on a forearm?

Yet, in a musty old volume of Life magazine, I stumbled across a couple of photos of individuals with skin adorned with colorful tattoos more varied than a simple anchor or symbol. The article was entitled, One Out of Ten Americans is Tattooed. You can read it in the Central Library Reference Room in the December 21, 1936 issue (pgs 30-31). It's amazing!

Small breweries have had a long history in Denver dating back to the pioneer days. As I scanned the microfilm of old newspapers, it seemed like breweries were popping up everywhere, just like now. Names such as Denver Ale Brewing, Sigi’s, Gilbridge Ale Brewery, Tivoli and Zangs are just a few names that appeared in the records.
