Prison Riot in Canyon City 1929

picture from Denver Library

Canyon City has long been home to Colorads office or corrections. This picture documents to states response to a prison riot in 1929. To be expected there are several men armed with rifles and shot guns. It is surprising that many of them are not in uniform.

The original picture was on a glass negative and you can see it deteriorating along the bottom of the print.
