This 1909 view of Steamboat Springs was taken from a hill on the west side of the Yampa River and shows homes and the downtown area. It appears that it was taken in spring as there is snow on the mountain and no foliage on the trees.

This 1909 photo of Steamboat Springs by Lewis Hellebust is looking to the southeast and was taken from a hill on the west end of town.  

Throughout the year, the Museum of Northwest Colorado and the Saturday Morning Press will partner in featuring 100-year-old images from the collection of Lewis Hellebust, an area photographer who “captured the dusty charm and vigor of the young town of Craig in 1910.”

Included this week are two images from the Hellebust catalog. The next installment will appear in the March 27 Saturday Morning Press.

A story about Hellebust, provided by the museum, appeared in the Feb. 13 Saturday Morning Press can be found online at www.craigdailypress.com by searching “Lewis Hellebust.”
