Going earlier in my slides, I found the same view in Cripple Creek in 1957. What this reveals is the location of the Wrigley sign in the previous post. It is barely visible on the building between the Schlitz and Texaco signs. It was blocked by new construction by 1984, and appears to still be there – a time capsule.
This was taken on Ektachrome which had faded to what appears to be totally red. My Nikon LS-4000 scanner plus VueScan software reconstructs the color pretty well. Pretty grainy however.
Also, the Mt. Pisgah sign was not there, nor was the Columbine Buffet sign.
