For at least 10 years this distinctive building has stood against "progress."
One of the things I love about Denver is that there is a good mixture of past architectural styles alongside the new. Our city is diverse, not only in its people and attitudes but also in its architecture. One of my favorite ways to pass time is to take the self-guided--and sometimes guided--walking tours through our city. We still have buildings standing that were here in the silver-mining days of Denver's origin. I love this old building and applaud its owners, whatever their motivation, for holding out against what I call "parking lot polution." I vaguely remember other such buildings beside it but they were demolished long ago.
