Photos: Denver is Strange tumblr's ten most memorable posts

If you ever had any doubts about whether the Mile High City can be a little odd at times, they'll be dispelled by a visit to the Denver Is Strange tumblr. The address collects weird and wacky images from throughout the history of the city, many of them culled from the invaluable Denver Public Library Western History Collection. We assembled our picks for the site's ten most memorable posts, complete with original text; they range from a gangland murder to a psychic lobster. Count them down below.
