A Voice of Colorado No. 209 Version 5.0:

By the 1920 many jobs commonplace in Loveland, CO. that included blacksmith, liveryman, and farmer gave way to other occupations, including those associated with the automotive industry and tourism. One example was the Lawrence E. Osborne family, who lived at 218. W. 5th Street. After Rocky Mountain National Park was established in 1915 Mr. Lawrence Osborne, along with his father, Daniel, and his brothers William and Otto, established and operated the Rocky Mountain Transportation Company, which boasted that it was the first automobile line to Estes Park, Co. The famed “Stanley Steamers”, invented by F.O. Stanley, were used by the Osbornes for their business.
