From the Archive: Just sweet

by Lesley Drayton, Curator, Fort Collins Local History Archive

I was looking through a folder of photographs the other day (by the way—did you know that the Local History Archive has over 250,000 prints, negatives, and slides in its Historic Photographs collection?) and came across this wonderful print of Mr. Bolivar Tedmon and Mrs. Alice (Allyn) Tedmon on their 60th wedding anniversary. These two prominent Fort Collins citizens met and were married in New York in 1873, but later moved to Fort Collins where they started the famous Tedmon House hotel.

What is so sweet about this photo? Well, not only are they celebrating their diamond anniversary, but Alice is wearing her wedding dress. After 60 years, it still fits! Now that is devotion.
