Kate Forgach put a link from her Tattle Tales column to Lost Fort Collins today in reference to the cool safe at City Drug that’s still was for sale. I’ll repost the photo below. You REALLY have to click through to see how awesome the painting is. And fans of typeface will find the close up print interesting too.
Here’s Kate’s story, in case you have no idea what I’m talking about…http://www.coloradoan.com/article/20090724/COLUMNISTS109/907240305/1024/LIFESTYLE/Oldest-kid-on-block-to-remain-a-local-staple
And here’s my original story. Even though you’ve already seen the safe, it’s still worth clicking through for the “Big jar o’ pills” photo and for KipW’s comment on getting locked in a safe in the basement under Beau Jos: http://lostfortcollins.com/2009/03/18/safe-at-city-drug/
The safe was sold just before City Drug moved. The new owner, a manager over at Ace Hardware, took delivery via forklift, restored the safe, and has begun the meditative task of trying to guess the combination…it seems nobody remembers it.
By the way, I just noticed another Mosler safe in the window at Silver Grill ….
