Interior view of the Georgetown Courier building in Georgetown, Colorado. Shows a small printing press, probably the Washington hand press that Jesse Summers Randall, the newspaper's editor, bought from the Colorado Miner newspaper, a hand powered paper knife, a cylindrical stove and stovepipe, cabinets and trays for holding type, tables with chairs, a glass arched cabinet and books in bookshelves line the walls of the room; gas lamps with globes are suspended over a set of type trays. Windows in the building's vestibule, which projects into the room, are covered with shades; one reads "Georgetown Courier" in reverse, and two silhouetted figures in profile are seen in another; an octagonal clock is over the windows. A young man sits at a desk next to a large window. Taxidermied animals, including a bobcat, birds, and a deer head are on the walls, along with paintings and numerous photographs, including artfully-arranged portrait cabinet cards. The room holds many potted plants including an amaryllis, geraniums, ivy, and other vines. A portrait bust stands on a cabinet.
