This postcard of old Denver is included in a folder featuring postcards with views along the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. It was a souvenir - belonging to my mother's brother, Richard - selected during the family's cross-country auto tour in 1923. He died in a car accident in 1927 at
age 15. Richard was pictured on the streets of Berkeley in 1916 in my post yesterday, and showing one of his treasured postcards seemed fitting for this week's Old Postcard Wednesday.
Here's a gorgeous view of Denver today.....

While researching a bit on Denver for this post I came across this video done in 2008 that I find humorous, although the guy speaking appears to be serious. And the woman with him seems to agree with everything ... and I mean everything ... he says! If you like this you can find that he has done numerous videos at YouTube, evidently having his own "worship tour" going on.
I'll end with a piece of news that I did find exciting about other young people in the Denver area. The Denver Museum of Nature & Science conducted its third annual two-week paleontology field school in June. This year the group "focused on plant and mammal diversity and evolution from about 53 to 50 million years ago, a time during the early to middle Eocene that encompassed the highest global temperatures during the past 65 million years."
