In the 1920s, Telluride Bank president Charles "Buck" Waggoner, with Town Marshal Skanlund, advertised the bank's security and "Half a Million Dollars Gold Reserve" by posing with stacks of silver dollars on the counter, protected by revolvers.

Historical Photo
This view of Main Street, ca. 1900, shows historic Telluride in its heyday. Two boys were playing in front of the San Miguel County Courthouse, at the far left. The two-story Sheridan Hotel was still standing, and the three-story New Sheridan had been completed. L.L. Nunn's First National Bank with its tower occupied a prominent spot on the street. Further on, one can see the Telluride Mercantile Company and the Mahr Building. Charles Painter's office and the Pekkarine Building are visible on the right. Note the streetlights hanging over the center of the street. Photograph courtesy of the Telluride Historical Museum. Photographed by Joseph E. Byers.

L. C. McClure photographed Telluride around 1910. The Telluride High School, now the Elementary School, sits prominently in the foreground at the intersection of Galena Avenue and Townsend Street. The towers of the San Miguel County Courthouse and the First National Bank are at the center of the picture, on either side of the three-story New Sheridan Hotel . The original two-story Sheridan Hotel had already burned (1906), but the Sheridan Opera House had not been built (1913). The cluster of houses in the background are located on the site of what is now Town Park. Photograph courtesy of the Denver Public Library Western History Collection.
