Today, I went out in search of architectural details that try to capture the essence of a place. My subject was Tennyson Street in northwest Denver. It is the main retail corridor of the Berkeley neighborhood and has changed a lot over the past ten years. When I first visited about fifteen years ago, the street looked tired – filled with musty old shops and lacking vibrancy.
Like some of the city’s more well known former tramway (street car) commercial districts, Tennyson Street is coming alive again. Today is it as a vibrant blend of old and new, a bit shabby and a bit slick.
