Not the trendy Larimer street of today!

Today's Weird Photo Wednesday gives a view of what Larimer street once was, a part of Denver's skid row. Now we have expensive restaurants, high end shops, Starbucks and a street that attracts tourists. But at one time, Larimer street had cheap hotels, cheap bars and people not so fortunate. The city is always changing and this photo gives a sense of what it was like 40 years ago. For more information about this photo, click here.
