From Streetcars to Light Rail on West Colfax

From Streetcars to Light Rail on West Colfax—West Colfax was originally connected to central Denver by streetcar–the viaduct came later in the early 1900’s. That is how people traveled to Elitches on Sloans Lake, for example. The new light rail re-establishes this important connection and the ease of commuting from West Colfax. The image below was taken in 1947 in front of 4500 W Colfax.
