“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

What I’m Reading: All The President’s Men – 1 in a series – “Five men had been arrested earlier that morning in a burglary at Democratic headquarters…”

August 20th, 2019 Comments off

“JUNE 17, 1972. Nine o’clock Saturday morning. Early for the telephone. Woodward fumbled for the receiver and snapped awake. The city editor of the Washington Post was on the line. Five men had been arrested earlier that morning in a burglary at Democratic headquarters, carrying photographic equipment and electronic gear. Could he come in?”

An amazing piece of industrial Victoriana. Imagine cooking and baking with this beast!

Wandering about Denver, we happened upon this historical home which also serves as an important women’s history center.

New Products -- From The Ancient Greeks in Sicily -- Get these Valle dei Templi Products and More From Douglas E. Welch Design and Photography [For Sale]

Includes totes, throw blankets, pillows, tops, tees, iPhone cases and much more!

The Story

I took over 200 photos as we walked around the Valley with our Sicilian relatives. The sun was blazing but we soaked in the history of the site through these remains from antiquity. It is difficult to truly understand that Greek speaking people walked, played, ate and worshiped at this site so many years before. You almost have to remind yourself that this isn’t some movie set made for your entertainment, but rather the survivors of human’s long history on the planet.
