Bloomfield Park Scrapbook

Identifier: B130

Overview

Sam Bloomfield had a fish market in Bloomfield Park (now Rude Park) that catered to the Orthodox Jews in the West Colfax area. In the early 1920s, philanthropists Isadore Rude, Leopold Guldman, and Mary Reed bought the land and deeded it to the City and County of Denver. The collection contains a scrapbook with articles about a Mesa county scandel involving murder and fish, Sam Bloomfield and his fish market, the West Side neighborhood, and various groups that met at the Park. The scrapbook also contains some ephemera and a few photographs ephemera.
