Description: Double-sided photograph of a horse-drawn fire wagon and Bull Creek. In the first photograph (front) the horse-drawn wagon is stopped in the middle of an un-paved main street in front of a row of storefronts; a sign on the wagon says "Colorado No. 2, A Unit for the Dam, 44 Members - Strong." Other carriages are visible in the background and people are standing in the windows and on the first-floor roofs of the stores. The stores include Gammel's Used Books, J.O.Buaas, Phil Bruckmann Painter and Decorator, and a drug store. In the second photograph (back), a man is paddling a canoe in a body of water identified as Bull Creek; the shoreline is covered with trees.
