I was visiting Lee Alex Vintage Modern to see photographer Dan Beahm’s newly mounted works and I spotted these postcards of two of my favorite downtown-Denver buildings.
This first postcard is from 1956 and is a shot of Mile High Center designed by I. M. Pei & Associates. The barrel-roof building in the front is the Transportation Center which is gone now, but much of Mile High Tower is still there.
Daniel Beahm and his wife Erika are Colorado filmmakers whose feature film Leading Ladies is available on Netflix. Lee Alex Vintage Modern just celebrated their one year anniversary in their new location at 24 Broadway.
The second postcard is the First National Bank building on 17th, designed in 1958 by Raymond Harry Ervin. This photo is especially interesting for me to see the roof pattern that you could view looking down from the Sky Deck observation area atop this mostly still intact skyscraper.
