1950s street scenes in Denver


Sorry - top LEFT corner! It says Champa and 16th...

Good catch!  I have fixed the typo. Thank you Patrick!

My mother worked at the Gates Rubber Company starting around 1958. I remember going with her on the weekend when she had to work overtime ... staying quiet. I remember her going to the Credit Union to take care of her banking. I remember the Christmas parties for the employees children. I remember the Clinic where I went when I was sick. THANK YOU for posting this.

Christmas parties for Gates Rubber Company employees' children? I'm impressed they did that! Thank you for sharing these memories of Gates, Pam. 

I went to Alcott Elementary in 1954. The school is on the opposite corner of 41st. Elitches is at 38th, three blocks south!
