“Rising 330 feet above Sixteenth Street, the Daniels and Fisher Tower in Denver was based on St. Mark’s Campanile in Venice and opened in 1911 as a beacon drawing shoppers to the adjacent Daniels and Fisher department store. The Daniels and Fisher department store closed in 1958 and was demolished for Denver’s Skyline Urban Renewal Project in 1970–71, but the tower was spared and eventually converted into offices. The tallest structure in Denver for more than forty years after it opened, the tower continues to be one of the city’s most iconic buildings.” — Colorado Encyclopedia

We had visited this interesting store the day before but I returned to get some photos. This gentleman provided the perfect accompaniment to my photo as I snapped away.

We spent our first day in Denver walking about downtown enjoying the scenery and the historical sites. We passed this — the Voorhies Memorial — as we walked towards the Colorado State House.

Old and new in Downtown Denver. We found out on a historical house tour that much of downtown was bulldozed so there are just a few historical remnants scattered about. That is Trinity Methodist Church in the distance. One of the survivors.

I highly recommend you visit when you are in Milan. This was an amazing respite from the city but still within the city. Bring bug spray as the mosquitos were fierce but the views were gorgeous.
