The Fur-Bearing Trout of Salida

Sent from Pueblo & Grand Junction, CO, July 18, 1939 to El Paso, TX. "Dear Jack - Now will you believe it? Am up here for a few days visiting my sister - having a great time. Have played tennis and will swim tomorrow nite. Saw an interesting operation at the hospital this morn. Am making a few trips around here. Country is beautiful. Going home Tues. - Margaret."

Looks like proof enough to me! A strange image, with an equally strange and unintended orange coloring from some liquid/chemical spill. Also, what operation was Margaret observing in the she a doctor/nurse, or was this more of a recreational surgery-watching situation? Many unanswered questions here.
