The 16th St. viaduct is no longer but as you can see the  Barteldes Seed (1906) building still stands. If you look closely, the sign on the the streetcar says “Good-Bye Old Friends: My Last Day is June 3rd”.   The photo was taken in the 1950’s. Denver had one of the nation’s largest networks of streetcars during the early 20th Century, with over 250 miles if track, which was headquartered in the Tramway Building which is now Hotel Teatro. By the 1950’s the streetcar routes were abandoned and made way for busses.

Did you guess The Carter Rice Building at 1623 Blake Street as the answer to yesterday’s #ThrowbackThursday question? If so, you guessed right! The Carter Rice Building is one of the few remaining examples of Second Renaissance Revival architecture in Denver’s central business district. It also typifies the small scale warehouse and commercial structures that dominated the lower downtown area after 1900. The building to the west that was home to Ferrari of Denver has since been demolished and replaced by another smaller building, which is home to the Cactus Club. Thanks for playing along! ...
