Lost Landmarks Series [Across the Creek]

Date posted: January 13, 2015

I recently began a new series of post’s called Lost Landmarks of Lincoln Park to promote a new historic images gallery on my blog, Across the CreekMany structures have either met the wrecking ball or simply fell apart. The Denver Public Library and History Colorado have a growing online catalog of historic photos that I am excited to share. The images offer a unique glimpse into our role in Denver’s relatively short history. For example:

The Barnard Block building at Eighth and Kalamath showcases one of our neighborhood’s original mixed-use, transit-oriented developments, with retail on the ground floor and “tenements” above. The photo places it at the crossing of two streetcar lines. Unfortunately, like many of our original structures, it would ultimately crumble from neglect. Click images below  for the more.
