#MemoryMonday: World War I Renault FT tank visits Cody in 1919

(Cody, Wyo.) – Happy Monday! Here at Reboot, Mondays mean #MemoryMonday! We thank our Park County Archives for making these Monday Memories possible. The Archives have provided us with unique photos of historic Park County through its history, and we love being able to share them with the community! We specially tip our hats to Park County Archives Curator Brian Beauvais for his assistance in finding, sharing and providing context for each of these photos. Here, in our next Monday Memory, we see a large number of Cody folks out supporting the World War I Renault FT tank, which visited Cody in May of 1919 to promote sale of Victory Bonds. Beauvais said of the photo: "World War I Renault FT tank climbing the hill south of Cody. The tank visited Cody in May 1919 to promote sale of Victory Bonds. A large number of Cody citizens turned out to appreciate the piece of cutting-edge technology. The image looks northwesterly over the neighborhood around the 11th & 12th st. & Beck Ave. Some prominent visible buildings include (left to right): the Park County Courthouse & jail, the Julia Goodman house, the old Presbyterian Church, the DeMaris house, the Carnegie Library, the Beck house, the Irma Hotel, & the Wallop-Moncreiffe Lumber Yard on the SE corner of 12th & Beck." Join us next Monday for our weekly jaunt down Park County memory lane… #reboot #news #memorymonday
