What Denver looked like in the 1900s Through these Fascinating Historical Photos

Denver was established as a city and county by a constitutional amendment in 1902. The Denver economy grew as tourism and the service sector expanded, energy resources were exploited, and federal offices were attracted. The Denver Livestock Exchange and the National Western Stock Show anchored Denver’s cattle town reputation. Growth began to pick up slowly after 1900 as the city’s economy improved due to stockyards, brickyards, canneries, flour mills, and leather and rubber goods. There were many breweries in Denver then, but only Coors Brewing survived and has become one of the country’s largest beer producers.

During Speer’s tenure as mayor from 1904 to 1912, several projects were initiated to add landmarks, update existing facilities, and enhance the city’s landscape. These included the City Auditorium, the Civic Center, and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Denver’s city leaders went to Washington D.C. and convinced the politicians there that Denver was no longer a frontier town. This allowed the first major party convention to be held in a western state. While jobs began trickling back into Denver in 1897, real estate prices remained depressed until 1900, as the U.S. economy began to recover.

Here are some interesting historical photos that will take you back to the 1900s in Denver. While buildings, streets, and wardrobes have evolved over time, many attractions remained popular today that have remained popular for a long time.
