Larimer and Seventeenth...

Click to enlarge

A wonderful glass slide (circa 1890) of Larimer street, looking west towards Seventeenth. The corner of Larimer and Seventeenth is famous for being the main thoroughfare where Soapy Smith operated the Prize Package Soap Racket. The red "X" marks the Chever Block building on the corner where Soapy is said to have had an office on the second floor. Note the trash everywhere.
