Edgar H. (Ed) Trimble, c. 1913

E. H. Trimble

In the hustle and rush of modern life there is a need of places of amusement and recreation as is afforded by such establishments as that of Mr. Trimble, who has a billiard parlor at No. 132 North College avenue, containing six of the finest tables in the city. Mr. Trimble hails from Missouri, but he has been thirty years in the city. His place is exceptionally well conducted and is the most popular resort of its kind in Fort Collins. He is a man of pleasing address, candid, and intelligent, and well qualified to bring to success any enterprise in which he might embark. He takes a deep interest in the affairs of the city and, like many other of our wide-awake citizens, is strongly in favor of agitating for another railroad to and from the city.
