Day 16 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Workboots

Surely, you're thinking why we would put such a falling-apart pair of shoes on display. The workboots seen in the picture above were actually found in the Hotel Boulderado's foundation in 2007 when the maintenance crew was renovating the ladies restroom on the Mezzanine. We believe them to be a remnant of the days when the Hotel Boulderado was under construction between 1906 and 1908, when some day laborer decided that the boots had worked their last day and kicked them off, only to be discovered a century later.
